Brian Anderson was just elected as the CEO/President of ChamberRVA in August and he is already hitting the ground running when he visited with us at Henrico CTE Now. Mr. Anderson talked with us about this years Mission Tomorrow: Next Generation event will be virtual on Wednesday, October 20th and Wednesday, October 27th from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
Mission Tomorrow: Next Generation will look a little different due to COVID-19, but our goal is the same: to expose the region’s eighth graders – over 12,000 of them! – to all the different types of careers at up to 170 local businesses in a fun, interactive way.
We also had Mac Beaton our Director of the Department of Workforce and Career Development for Henrico County Public Schools. Mr. Beaton and Mr. Anderson also talked about the importance of career & technical education and what is new for students this year including Major Clarity and their tools for students.
