On August 27 and 28, 2007, ETA convened the Energy Skilled Trades Summit in conjunction with the Southern Governors' Association annual meeting in Biloxi, MS. Nearly 300 participants attended representing industry, economic development, education, and workforce communities. On Day One, breakout sessions were designed for participants to discuss the four major workforce challenges faced by the Energy Skilled Trades industry: Career Awareness and Outreach, Untapped Pools of Labor, Funding Strategies, and Policy and Education. On Day Two, participants formed state teams (some multi-state teams) to develop action items as part of a state strategic plan.
