ACCE Mick Fleming“Since my visit to Springfield in February, I have been highlighting the work being done there in visits to major metro markets and in conversations with education and workforce pros across the country. There are definitely unique elements to Springfield’s approach to workforce development and education, such as the truly innovative STEM academy and multi-pronged linkages to Clark State Community College.  The biggest differentiation for Springfield, however, is not one thing – it is everything!

The solutions-focused work related to equity of opportunity, job-skills matching, tech components to after school programs are each exceptional in the Springfield region, as is the level of integration between economic development with workforce development. Because it is structured and led in a holistic manner, the whole has become more powerful than the sum
of the parts.

– Mick Fleming, President and CEO, Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (May 2016)
