The National Learning Network

Growth of the TPM initiative has continued thanks to a national network of TPM leaders and champions who act as peer advisors to those businesses and states new to the process. Each summer these practitioners gather at the National Learning Network Summit in D.C. to share best practices, discuss challenges and successes, and meet other practitioners. In October each year, the U.S. Chamber Foundation’s national workforce conference, Talent Forward, brings these audiences together again to discuss the year ahead for the initiative as well as network with other workforce leaders from across the country.

ABOUT THE INITIATIVE
