ASU Morrison Institute Report 

Dick Dahl, president of the Verde Valley Forum for Public Affairs presented highlights from ASU's Morrison Institute report, an in-depth study of the policy issues in the Verde Valley. The main emphasis of this report is the need to improve post-secondary education. "By 2020, 65 percent of all jobs in the United States are projected to require a post-secondary education that will lead to credentials, certifications and degrees. Arizona's investment in human talent will have a direct bearing on future economic prosperity and quality of life," the report states.  A number of initiatives and goals are outlined in the full report that can be found at The Verde Valley Forum for Public Affairs is a non-profit, non-political organization of volunteers dedicated to addressing current and long-range issues facing the Verde Valley communities, and facilitating  informed consensus through the forum process —bringing people and ideas together. They are modeled after the highly-successful Arizona Town Hall. Club President Jennette Bill announced the book "The House That Mouse Built" will be donated to the Sedona Public Library on Dick's behalf.
