GOOD NEWS: The State of Alabama invests $16.5MM in a public-private partnership between the University of Alabama, Alabama Power, and Mercedes (transportation R&D building). For over 25 years, Alabama has worked to position itself as a worldwide leader in the automotive industry. This workforce development initiative is a collaboration between the public and private sector that will allow our state to be at the forefront of research and development efforts in a dynamic field. The long-term investment in Alabama’s human capital will ultimately demonstrate how Alabamians have the brainpower to create products and services that will allow us to continue to compete in a global economy.

This week we attended one of the best Alabama State Bar conferences yet, filled with a variety of seminars and activities applicable to all attendees. Attorney Fred Gray, who represented Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement, served as the keynote speaker at lunch. The Alabama Center for Dispute Resolution gave an excellent presentation on how mediation can save both parties time and money. Everyone had opportunities to learn and have a good time as well.
Congratulations to new President Taze Shepard. Thank you who to all who planned and participated in the 144th Annual Meeting. #Our67
