Infrastructure is a bipartisan issue. It's time to rebuild together.

Policymakers, industry experts, and city leaders agree – we must rebuild America’s infrastructure before it’s too late. But, it's not just about finding the necessary funds to fix physical infrastructure, it's also about investing in the workforce that will design, build and maintain these complex systems. From fixing water main breaks and potholes in streets, to thinking about the future and the possibilities of newer and smarter assets that weave broadband, sustainability and smart technology into the fabric of our communities, all infrastructure sectors require skilled individuals to maintain and optimize America’s infrastructure.

Join us for a discussion to learn more about what it takes to develop the workforce that will reimagine and rebuild our nation’s essential infrastructure. Panelists include:

  • Mayor Mark Stodola, Little Rock, Arkansas, and President, National League of Cities

  • Clarence E. Anthony, CEO and Executive Director, National League of Cities

  • Amy Blair, Research Director, Economic Opportunities Program, The Aspen Institute
