EDUCATION

The Salisbury Area Chamber’s Education Committee Network (EN) is planning its first SACC Community Forum on Education that will be FREE and Open to the Public. Concerned parents, students, business owners, and county residents are welcome to attend. This much needed event is scheduled for Thursday, March 31, 2022, at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Safety protocols to prevent COVID infections will be in place.

This Community Forum on Education will feature two (2) panel presentations on two (2) critical topics important to educating and employing our youth. The first panel will address the topic of “Students-Parents-Teachers: Learning in Crisis”. The second panel will provide workforce development information on “Career Planning and Career Employment on the Shore”. In between these two panel presentations, there will be an informative keynote address entitled “Maryland’s Blueprint Initiative and Wicomico Priorities”. Funds have legislatively been approved for this statewide initiative and every Maryland County will be held accountable for its implementation. We will explore how this legislation might impact our teachers, students, and communities in the near future.

Members of the Education Committee Network (EN) and their Community Influencers will suggest and confirm appropriate speakers and panelists at their February monthly meeting.  The Chamber is currently seeking financial contributions to provide free refreshments for attendees. All interested sponsors can call the Chamber at (410) 749-0144.
