"national lieutenant governors association" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM

"Within a year two years. I was the chairman of the national governor's association that doesn't surprise me. Surprise me. But but but but but it was a good group. And it was very similar to what I did. As a mayor in the town of Cumberland for twelve years, bringing municipal leaders together mayors together to meet regularly, you know organic way that so we were helping each community out through pooling population. So it was kind of a natural. I enjoyed it still a member of the national association. My the last meeting that I chair Jeff was in Nashville, and what I asked the the executive director to do was to put together agenda where every Lieutenant governor came in and gave a fifteen minute presentation on something that they actually would doing physically doing not thinking about but physically do and accomplishing different rate. So this one presentation by Lieutenant governor Hampton and Kentucky was on that she has started an entrepreneur challenge. And she was able to get. Private dollars to be donated for scholarship. And so she ran it. I thought it was great while I came back came back to Rhode Island from from Tennessee, I asked Andrea in our office to contact the the office in Kentucky. And then our staff was able to put together a a similar program as they've had in Kentucky. And we were able to do that last year. It was great. So awesome. When you're involved with the larger group because you never know where the idea is gonna come from. So you being part of the national Lieutenant governors association, you tapped into that kind of an idea, and I'm sure you shared great ideas with the group as well. So it's really cool. And I think it's important for us not to get myopic in what we do and reach out to others and see what others are doing in in my practice. I'm Michael to conferences about ten a year. I know some advisors. They don't go to any conferences. And I'm like when you're not that smart. I'm sorry. But nobody's that smart that you think you have all the right ideas. So you need to go out and get exposed. So the people see what other folks are doing so out of curiosity. What were some of the ideas that came up in the in the first one? Yeah. So various ideas, but we had eighteen different high schools participate. We had over fifty fifty applications and. One of the things I would say too is, you know, before I tell you if the thought on the ideas, but this is open to any high school student in the state of Rhode Island. So it could be a you could be in a private school. You could be in a district school. You could be in a home school. You could be a high school student that's going to high school outside the state or down. So any high school student resident last year, the the young lady from LaSalle had a real interesting concept? She taught she was talking about helping high school students and get over the fear of public speaking. So she put together this very, very detailed. Report and presentation was she had a virtual reality type of presentation. We would you had the the goggles on and you and she was talking about, you know, how she was going to help high school students get over the fear speaking by through training, but it was a virtual reality training. What a great idea that's a great idea. So that young lady, she's I think we believe that she's going to be heading to Babson next year. She was a junior at the time that she applied. So that's important for everybody know that they could be a freshman sophomore junior senior. And so that that was one of the really more creative ideas that I think that was presented, and that's a great idea. And I'll tell you what some people may not believe this because you know, I've been a radio now in my life thirteenth year. I do seminars every month. When I was in grade school. I refused to stand up in front of the class. I just refuse because I was fearful so having that public speaking fear dispelled in high school would have been so awesome for me, and my b- very personally. But when I did my first seminar dates way back and the congress came out with this ridiculous law for Medicaid planning, and it was dubbed grandma goes to jail, and it was a felony. If an adviser helped the family qualify for Medicaid is actually a felony. They put it out there. And Janet Reno was attorney general she flat out came out and said, we are not going to pursue this law. But it was out there. And they they did that. So that was my first seminar because I was outraged and I bought a slide program now slides the old way ka chunk Kucha. It's not a PowerPoint. Right. And I was so fearful I did it right down the street here at Lincoln library, and I literally turn the lights down low stood in the back of the room and read the script because I was so fearful of getting up in front of that group. So so I think this is year series series of first name, and she I think that those are the types of things we we we had all this participants. Like, I said, but we also did a couple other creative things I think for us here in Rhode Island. We partnered in with with the millennial Rhode Island group Rhode Island whose hashtag is choose Rhode Island does three hundred or more members of that group all millennial professionals that are very positive about a state. So we thought that would be a great partner to because it was young kids in high school young entrepreneurial professionals in the in the in this millennial group. So they became the fiduciaries for the dollars that we see that we were able to partner in with the credit unions of Rhode Island, all the credit unions. They have a regional office that they agreed that they would participate in this effort. Nice. And so they they they're the ones who put together the the dollars that we're using for scholarship money. So we're able to pot and then we actually partnered with New England tech. So when we had the finals, we had the young millennials being the shot tank guys. Okay. You know, we have high school students given their presentation. And then we partnered with New England tech with wood in a real neat. A place where there was probably proceeding for seventy five eighty people. And so that was great. So the one that presentation was made public speaking. I'm sitting there saying to myself I could use that to like you said, and what a fantastic idea because we're all I think that in the world that we live, and we always trying to get better at what we're doing. Sure. And you're giving presentations all over the place, and I sure that. You always want to make sure your presentation as good as it could be. And I'm always looking at ways to you know, what I'm publicly speaking. Or you know, how loud I suppose to speak. You know, what what type of energy? Should it be putting in here? How long did, you know? So I thought that was a great idea. I can't wait to that app. Is ready? I'm gonna use it all greats of real quick, the hashtag choose our I or choose Rhode Island's fell doubt. Choose right shoes. Are I just want to clarify that? That's all great information. Look forward to having you back in the next segment. We're gonna take a quick break. Excellent. Then we'll be right back. Green party said he asks what's better party or an alternate dream? Thought. So no matter if you're celebrating a birthday or just a Friday, enter it ultimately dot com, and you could win.
