A Discussion on Northern Kentucky's Future

What's in store for Northern Kentucky's future?

That will be the topic of discussion at Tuesday's Northern Kentucky Forum, hosted at the Digitorium inside Griffin Hall at Northern Kentucky University.

“The five year workplan contains four bold and inspiring goals including education, wellness, jobs, and vibrancy," said Kristine Frech, vice president of Skyward, the group formerly known as Vision 2015 that has developed a strategic plan for the region's next five years called myNKY. "With these goals, the vision is poised to bring success to our residents, families, and businesses; fostering a community that is vibrant, inclusive and connected.”

On Tuesday at from 5 - 6:30 p.m., the Northern Kentucky Forum will host “What Does the Future Look Like for myNKY?”.

"This region is a place where anyone who wants to get involved can do so," said Carla Landon, NKY Forum board chair. "The Northern Kentucky Forum looks forward to partnering with Skyward in an aim to accelerate change in the community we love. I hope everyone who was involved in the creation of the myNKY plan as well as anyone just learning about it will join us for the public launch of this plan and come ready to help!”

The panel discussion will be moderated by former Cincinnati Enquirer writer and current NKU director of public relations Amanda Nageleisen. The panel includes Candace McGraw, CEO of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and current Sjyward board chair; Bill Scheyer, president of Skyward; Sharmili Reddy, Ft. Mitchell city administrator; Kara Williams, Shoestring Strategies; Janice Urbanik, Partnership for a Competitive Workforce; Dr. Lynn Saddler of the Northern Kentucky Health Department; and Tara Johnson of the Catalytic Fund.
