Dialogues on Leadership New Leaders Only
Christopher M. Carmody
President, Greater Cleveland Film Commission

Start: 10:30 am

The last few weeks have seen the subject of education reach front and center across Northeast Ohio. Public school funding, the end of the BBB era and the hyper-politicizing of the selection of her successor, and the realization we need progress educating the region's children are all important drivers for discussion. The NEO Excellence Roundtable has maintained an ongoing dialogue on such key issues impacting economic development in Northeast Ohio, which we will broaden beginning at the August 16th session.

Start: 4:30 pm

The
total community health of Northeast Ohio is affected by the
transportation choices we make daily to get from point A to
point B. What mode of travel we choose, which fuels and technologies
we use, and where we locate our businesses relative to mass
transit stations are just a few examples of the choices we face.
MapQuest won’t help us make these sustainability choices!

Children and parents alike were, and still are, captivated by Where the Wild Things Are that tells the story of a boy named Max who “made mischief of one kind or another� and is sent to his room without his supper. As readers will recall Max then sails on a private boat “through night and day� and becomes “king of the wild things�. Published in 1963, the book was awarded a Caldecott Medal in 1964. An exhibition for people of all ages, Where the Wild Things Are provides the opportunity for hands-on interaction with Sendak’s stories and characters. Visitors are encouraged to dress up like a “wild thing� and dance in the wild forest, cook in the “night Kitchen,� read on Rosie’s stoop, slide into a bowl of chicken soup and create their own masterpieces while listening to classical music.
