Share this page

As announced by Politico:

“Multiple crises hitting the U.S. at once within the past year – from the global pandemic and ensuing economic recession, sudden shift to remote schooling, racial injustice and police brutality protests and a tense presidential election – have pushed governors to take the lead and command the national spotlight in remarkable and historic ways.

On Thursday, March 11 at 10 AM ET / 7 AM PT, The Fifty: America’s Governors will virtually convene governors from across the U.S. for interviews to discuss challenges they face in the Covid-19 response and recovery efforts and how to best rebuild the American economy at the state and local levels in the wake of the pandemic.

This day long summit will be broken up into two sessions, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET and 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM ET (times subject to change).

This virtual program will feature an executive conversation between POLITICO CEO, Patrick Steel and Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of U.S. Government Affairs, Fred Humphries.

Register to watch.”
