Corporate Voices for Working Families holds its seventh annual meeting this week in Washington. And it gives us an opportunity to visit with friends and associates — as well as to explore issues that are important to improving the lives of working families.

The theme for the annual meeting is Mapping New Avenues for 21st Century Working Families. And throughout the meeting we’ll hear from experts who will share their insights and perspectives and help us map trends in workforce readiness, the economy and government. I’ll share highlights on this blog.

And on Wednesday we’ll honor the 24 recipients of our inaugural Best of Congress award. The award recognizes those members of Congress who are leaders in advocating legislation that improves the lives of working families and who demonstrate their personal commitment through their own family friendly staff office policies.

Should be an eventful and information meeting.

And to those from our partner companies and our other friends who are attending, welcome.
