The "New Economy" paradigm for economic development is as follows: 1).
Workforce Development (education), 2). Utilization of emerging technologies,
and 3). Venture Capital.  Accordingly, this Horn Network update identifies
Conferences dealing with each of these 3 components of the New Economic
Development Paradigm.

numerous initiatives designed to combat the labor shortage. This issue of
Firstline Midwest details various states' efforts to attract and retain
workers and to better utilize untapped sources of labor.  The full text of
