Greetings:

 

I serve on the board of Global Detroit, an economic development initiative which was formed a couple of years ago under the auspices of the New Economy Initiative ($100 million fund in SE Michigan), the Skillman Foundation, and the Detroit Chamber of Commerce.  

 

Global Detroit is led by Steve Tobocman, the former Majority Leader in the Michigan House, and was envisioned by John Austin, co-director of the Great Lakes Economic Initiative at Brookings.

 

On behalf of my friends Steve, John, Hayg Oshagan (president of New Michigan Media), and on behalf of the board of Global Detroit, I would like to invite you to attend the conference, "Immigration & Michigan's Economic Future," on July 18th, from 9 am to 5 pm.  The Featured speaker will be Governor Rick Snyder, a big proponent of immigrant and minority-based economic development, and Peter Karmanos, Jr., former CEO, Compuware. 

 

The itinerary and full listing of speakers can be found below.  You can register for this free conference.

Because Detroit and Cleveland are blazing new ground, and because our cities are geographically and economically intertwined, I am hopeful that our two cities can collaborate and share best practices. 

 

In this regard, I have assembled some materials that have been produced by Global Detroit, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, the Greater Cleveland Partnership, Mayor Michael Bloomberg (Partnership for a New American Economy), Policy Bridge, Welcome Center for New Pennsylvanians, Startup Chile, and others.

I think that even a casual read of this material will provide a window into the exciting discussions that are happening in the Midwest and around the country.

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks, and I hope you can join us in Detroit on the 18th!

 

 Best Regards,

 

 Richard T. Herman, Esq.
Cleveland, Ohio
