Notes de l'éditeur
Good morning! What a creative community we have here today! If you missed our welcome reception last night, we had Jennifer Garner and Brad Paisley stop by, man that was fun. Actually, we enjoyed an African guitarist, a movie about hippies and a bunch of guys with no pants. So we’re off to a creative start. We are here today to build creative communities for the new economy. We need creative communities because our challenges and opportunities demand a more resourceful, innovative approach than in the past. We’re focusing on the new economy because that is where the big opportunities are. Before we begin, I wanted to let you know that this conference was organized by the Creative Communities volunteer working group of A Vision Shared. If you’re one of the team members, would you please stand up so we can thank you? A Vision Shared is a special asset for West Virginia, and I wanted to introduce a special new asset we have in Julie Terry, the new energetic president of this organization. I’d like us to welcome Julie to her new job as president, and have her explain just for a minute what A Vision Shared is all about. Julie?
