We are thrilled to welcome Dave Gering, Executive Director of the Manufacturing Industrial Council. Dave has a distinguished career in journalism and government. He will explain the benefits and challenges of keeping a viable industrial base. Of topical interest is the Council’s view of Shell Oil using Seattle as a staging port for their Arctic exploration. In contrast to the “kayaktivists” and “raging grannies,” the Council sees opportunity for economic development. Join us for what is sure to be a lively discussion.
