He’ll talk about lessons learned and provide examples of best practices. Subjects may include regional transportation, emergency preparedness and business continuity, Green competitive advantages and workforce issues. He will also talk in brief about the University of Maryland “Tech Transfer” and the restrictions in doing so because it is from government money, so it is restricted.
