This week in our e-magazine you’ll find our mid-year review highlighting the key executive transition announcements, top merger and acquisition news, and the best stories covered in our daily news blog and weekly e-magazine from the first half of 2014.
The Inaugural STEM Symposium held March 2014 was a great success and included 1,500 students, parents and teachers, 30 exhibitors from the private and public sectors, as well as keynote speakers from various STEM industries. The event would not have been possible without Presenting Sponsor Leidos, Founding Sponsor Northrop Grumman, and Venue Sponsor Nysmith School.
The Second Annual STEM Symposium will be held March 7th 2015, sign up for the free event at STEM Symposium.com. This fall the WashingtonExec STEM Council and the broader WashingtonExec network will adopt the Langston Hughes Middle School in Reston, Va. to bring a weekly math and science tutoring program led by career-engineers. This initiative is spearheaded by Jim Howland (MITRE) and Ed Swallow (WashingtonExec STEM Council Chairman).
We also wanted to send a special thanks out to our readers, members, speakers, and supporters for the impact that you have made not only in the local business community, but within the development of our organization. Our company continues to grow across the board with over 250 members in 10 separate outcome-based and result-oriented networking Councils. In addition, our readership of executives of consequence continues to grow and expand each week.
Reflecting on our three years in business, we cannot wait to cover the rest of this dynamic year. See the mid-year review here.
