A Busy Week Ahead

By September 26, 2005General

Big week ’round the NAM corral this week. First, it’s our semi-annual Board meeting, here in Washington. Some 140 Directors will gather to discuss a whole range of policy issues and to hear from marquee speakers like Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), Senate Manufacturing Caucus Co-Chair Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and SEC Chairman Chris Cox. The Board will also hear from Education Secretary Margaret Spellings. Remember, we’re the biggest end-user of what our schools are cranking out. As David Kerns used to say when he was at Xerox, we’re the ones doing the recall work for America’s schools.

Also this week we expect the nomination of Judge John Roberts to be taken up by the full Senate. If you’ve not already done so, please drop a note to your Senators by clicking here and urge them to vote to make Judge Roberts the next Chief Justice of the Untied States.

There will be the other usual stuff, the Poster on Wednesday, an open thread on Thursday and of course Friday Follies, always the Follies.

Stay tuned, keep checking this space for developments throughout the week.
