NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden will help kick off the National Governors Association summer meeting in Nashville next week.
The event begins on July 10 and runs through July 13. The agenda includes discussions of innovations around the states in areas like education, workforce, health care, veterans and jobs.
The meetings include several "governors-only" sessions, in a private, off-the-record setting.
Biden is scheduled to attend the opening session of the meeting.
Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, who served as NGA chairman when he was Tennessee governor in the 1980s, will attend a session on the role of education in economic development.
Private sector speakers include Accenture's group chief executive for North America, Stephen Rohleder, and Best Buy President and CEO Hubert Joly.
