EdNC leads in NC and beyond: GRA Annual Conference wraps in St. Pete

Hey y’all. My thanks to Alex who has been covering news ag since I left in June for Mexico. We’ve wrapped up a whirlwind month, including the just-concluded annual conference of the national Governmental Research Association held in beautiful St. Pete. I am thankful for the opportunity to lead the national GRA. Founded in 1914, this group of independent think tanks from across the country collects, analyzes, and distributes “information on governmental activities to citizens and officials for the improvement of government and the reduction of its cost.” They tackle the most pressing policy issues facing our world, and I call them my meaningmakers and wayfinders. Take a look at Robert’s video below. Happy summer!
