2012 Schwarzenegger Symposium Thank You

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Yesterday, the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy held its inaugural symposium at the University of Southern California. By all accounts, the event was a great success! We are very proud of this achievement, but we know that your involvement was key—and we would like to thank you personally for joining us on this historical occasion.

We believe the discussion and debate that took place all day long on post-partisanship, innovation, and the relationship between local policymaking and global problem-solving will help shape our thinking on crucial issues well into the future. The Schwarzenegger Institute is deeply committed to bringing the best thought leaders, such as yourself, together to work to develop real world, sustainable solutions to the critical issues of the day. For this reason, we will continue to host symposia in the future, but we will also work on-the-ground in an effort to assure that great ideas are translated into real-world policy reform.

We look forward to collaborating with you again in the near future.
