31ST ANNUAL EMERGING ISSUES FORUM
FEBRUARY 8-9, 2016

A Summary Look at the 2016 Forum:

Look ahead one generation. Automation may eliminate half of North Carolina’s current jobs. And we’ll be crossing the majority-minority population threshold.

North Carolina needs a new conversation about future job creation. At last year’s Forum, participants forged a plan to strengthen innovation capacity. The 2016 Forum builds on that work. We’ll seek new models and strategies to position North Carolina as a leader in the global battle for good jobs for tomorrow’s diverse workforce.

Join us for the 2016 Emerging Issues Forum!  Join leaders and learners from every North Carolina sector, region, and point of view.  We welcome stakeholders and all members of the general public.

Plan to bring your ideas, to learn from others, to be inspired, to act.


The 31st Annual Emerging Issues Forum convenes February 8 and 9, 2016.  For general information about the Forum, please use the quick links above.  Below you will find information about event locations, parking, registration dates/fees, cancellation policy, and hotels.
