|Progress Report August 7, 2012|
1. A Pan African Nation: We spent last week in Trinidad Tobago and enjoyed every second of it. Our hosts, The Emancipation Support Group, headed by Kafra Kambon were truly comprehensive in their program and gracious to us and the other speakers. In addition to all of this, we were introduced to the President of Nigeria, Honorable Goodluck Jonathan, and the Prime Minister of Trinidad, Honorable Kamla Persad-Bissessar. “Frosting on the cake” came when Kafra announced the beginning stages of a NBCC chapter in the nation. God bless Trinidad Tobago and we look forward to many returns in the future. Look forward to my article in the future entitled “Notes from Trinidad Tobago”.
3. Member of the Week: Congratulations to Aldrica Lattimore, Accurate Engineering Integrated Construction Services, Inc., for being named SBA Champion Business of the Year – 2012. This sister makes us proud! www.accurateeengineeringics.com

You will present to energy officials, state and local government representatives, the business community, the academic community, public policy experts, economic development professionals, and students.
