Inaugural Meetings

Boeing’s spectacular keynote was a Seattle highlight. “What elephant?”


At the first semi-annual meetings (Chicago in August and Phoenix in October), Roundtable members listened to powerful presentations from Harvard’s Marc Roberts, the University of Pennsylvania’s Kathleen Hall Jamieson, & AASA’s Paul Houston.  The Roundtable also examined social networks and community-school collaboration around health care and recreation in Phoenix’s Murphy School District.  A dozen Roundtable members then met in Seattle to participate in Peter Senge’s November systems thinking conference, Pegasus.
