The Tennessee Valley Corridor released additional details yesterday on how its 25th anniversary celebration will unfold in today’s virtual environment for large events.
Originally scheduled as a two-day, normal conference in late May at Milligan University in Johnson City and delayed until mid-July, the event has been converted to a five-part series of 90-minute virtual sessions starting July 16 and continuing for four consecutive Thursdays. Each program will begin at 1 p.m. EDT/12 noon CDT. The topics by date are as follows:
- July 16 – “The Appalachian Highlands Meeting the Challenge”;
- July 23 – “Huntsville & Oak Ridge – Science & Technology in the TVC”;
- July 30 – “Public Power Fueling Economic Growth in the TVC”;
- August 6 – “America’s New National Security Challenges”; and
- August 13 – “Meeting TVC’s Workforce Challenges.”
There will be no registration fee charged, and registration will open next week.
Speakers already announced include three members of Tennessee’s Congressional delegation – Representative Chuck Fleischmann, the TVC’s top volunteer, and two retiring members of Congress – Senator Lamar Alexander and Representative Phil Roe.
