As part of its new Business Horizon Series, NCF, in partnership with the Chamber's Let's Rebuild America initiative hosted a half-day program with dialogue that meant a lot to the future of our country.  History records that no economy can function without a viable and dynamic infrastructure that creates jobs and spurs innovation in limitless ways.

The program opened with remarks discussing the challenges and opportunities we have for strategically investing in the resilience of our nation’s infrastructure by one of America’s most distinguished and accomplished crisis leaders, Adm. Thad Allen. The half-day program also featured the release of Let’s Rebuild America’s annual update to its Infrastructure Performance Index series that measures how well transportation, energy, broadband, and water systems are meeting the demands of the nation.  This update focused on Transportation Infrastructure.  The day then concluded with a senior level panel of public and private sector infrastructure investment, protection and resilience leaders that discussed, “What We Want / What We Need.”
