As states deal with increasing job losses, particularly in the manufacturing sector, state leaders and advocates are looking for innovative solutions to deal with the crisis.

The call with highlight presentations on key policies from the Summit, including:
· rapid response networks to help workers during layoffs,
· early warning programs to avert layoffs in the first place,
· new industry partnerships to help whole sectors revitalize themselves in the face of global competition, and
· policy programs to promote high road manufacturing and a greening of the regional economy.
The session will include both speakers and a question-and-answer section to help state leaders think about tailoring these policies for their own communities.
