Why I’m (Still) Investing in the Education Industry

by Jim McVety, First Step Advisors

A year ago I first introduced my thinking behind the Talent Development Scholarship, I focused on the opportunity to engage new members of our industry in a shared mission to improve educational outcomes.

And did we ever. During CiC 2011, four up-and-coming education executives took full advantage of the scholarship to learn, network, reflect, and grow.

As you read through the posts from past winners, think about the last time you engaged so meaningfully in an opportunity to do these things. AEP, and CIC in particular, stand for growth and development and allow professionals in our space to learn from the best.

Consider our keynote speaker, Fernando M. Reimers, who will bring a global perspective that not only aligns to the International Markets, he is poised to challenge our spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. What better way to join this effort than to nurture that spirit in a new crop of innovators?

So join me in supporting the scholarship by sharing this post, emailing colleagues, or even co-sponsoring with First Step Advisors. It’s a small way to have a big impact.

Call me directly at 215.858.8820 or email me and we’ll keep the discussion going. If CIC 2012 produces scholarship winners even half as engaged as 2011, we’ll all benefit.
