Event sponsored by State and Federal Communications
On April 18, a charismatic David Adkins—Executive Director of the Council of State Governments and former Kansas state senator—joined Akron Roundtable as guest speaker at their monthly luncheon. State and Federal Communications, Inc. sponsored the event.
Mr. Adkins spoke candidly to a full and attentive audience on his topic, “The State of the States.” In truth, he didn’t speak too specifically on the actual state of each state, but more so on how we as a unified nation can approach problems in order to determine the best solutions. Quoting from several inspired books, Mr. Adkins left the audience stimulated and encouraged.
Following the luncheon, we hosted Mr. Adkins at our offices for a reception, celebrating his time spent in Akron.

With a warm Akron reception directly following the Akron Roundtable Luncheon
State and Federal Communications is a big fan of the Akron Roundtable and we attend their speaker series luncheon each month. “Bringing the World to Akron” is the Roundtable’s motto, and for us this is especially true this month.
We are very proud to sponsor this month’s speaker, David Adkins, who is the Executive Director and CEO of the Council of State Governments (CSG). Mr. Adkins will be speaking on “The State of the States” with insight and perspectives you can find nowhere else!
CSG is the only nonpartisan, nonprofit organization serving all three branches of government.
Following the Akron Roundtable luncheon, State and Federal Communications will be offering a warm Akron reception honoring Mr. Adkins. The reception will take place from 1:15 to 3:30 at our office located across the street from the Quaker Station at 80 South Summit Street, Suite 100, Akron.

Legislators join for 67th annual meeting
Attending from 11 Midwestern states and four Canadian provinces, legislators have gathered in Cleveland for the 67th annual meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference of the Council of State Governments from July 15 through the 18. The conference is being held in the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, giving legislators a taste of Cleveland.
Elizabeth Bartz, President and CEO of State and Federal Communications, Inc. is attending the meeting to observe as legislators discuss the need for regional and economic improvements.
According to the Cleveland brochure for the 2012 conference, five political speakers will give presentations at the meeting, including the host, Ohio representative Armond Budish. The reception took place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Events in the evening will give the attendees the opportunity to bond and participate in discussions, while the Family Night at the FirstEnergy Powerhouse building allows time for family fun.
Referring to the annual meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference, Senator Kate Sullivan of Nebraska was quoted in the brochure, stating that it is “a time for networking with colleagues, learning from each other, listening to great presenters, all with the overarching reminder that we, as legislators, have been elected to ‘govern’ and that it is done best in the spirit of bi-partisanship.”
Through a variety of activities and events, the 67th annual meeting of the Midwestern Legislatives Conference in Cleveland will bring together legislators to expand on regional matters while enjoying the sites of the city.

Aren’t you jealous of the families taking vacations in the summer? I know we all try to fit them in but it’s hard to do when you look at the summer schedule of conferences.
Between NCSL, CSG, NGA, and ALEC there is little time between July 11th and August 8th to jump in a pool. And, let me add the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese is holding its Biennial Clergy-Laity Congress July 1st through July 5th. Yes, only the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese would think it is okay to have a conference during American Independence Day in Phoenix, Arizona. But, that is where yours truly will be for the holiday.
This year I have written a lot about how professional development and networking are really connected. Attending these conferences is a phenomenal way to run into people you might not see regularly and the associations have events incorporating networking opportunities.
My favorite conference this year will be CSG MLC in Cleveland, Ohio! This conference is including events at Blossom Music Center (the VA Wolf Trap of Ohio), at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and even the Pro-Football Hall of Fame in Canton. You will see the best of the best Ohio has to offer and we are only a few blocks away from Dan Gilbert’s Horseshoe Casino.
If CSG MLC isn’t in your plans, check out O H I O Night at NCSL in Chicago. Thanks to our friends at Whirlpool, this event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday August 8th, at the Reid Murdoch Building on 325 North LaSalle—Penthouse Level. We will be happy to send you sponsor information to join us.
Until next month, remember you bring value to your organization because of the people you know in the government affairs community. See you on the circuit!
