The Alabama Business Leader Summit on Early Childhood Investment is an event co-hosted by the Alabama Partnership for Children, Alabama School Readiness Alliance, Business Council of Alabama, and the Alabama Chamber of Commerce Association.
This summit's focus will be to engage Alabama business leaders on the evidence of the economic return on investment, and for the important role of their leadership in advocacy and policy change. The Blueprint for Zero to Five, Alabama's plan for school readiness and success in life, will provide a guideline in the planning, funding, advocacy, accountability, and policy discussions of the summit. Attendance to this meeting is by invitation only.
