Speakers at the opening general session of the 2008 HVACR & Plumbers Workshop in Lansdowne, Va., included Dana Daugherty (right), deputy administrator of the Apprenticeship Training, Employer and Labor Services, Employment and Training Administration, along with Angie Garcia Falconetti (left), special assistant to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Colleges of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education.

Daughtery and Falconetti provided instructors with information on what’s happening at the federal level in regard to education, including the possible fate of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act, which may be cut by the Bush administration. The workshop, held March 4-7 at the National Conference Center, was sponsored by eight industry associations, including The NEWS.
