Letter from the Ceo

Welcome to the launch of the Bush Center Briefing. Every two months, you will receive this digital newsletter to keep you informed of the work of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, where our focus is on developing leaders, advancing policy, and taking action to solve today’s most pressing challenges. We accomplish our work through impact centers devoted to Domestic Excellence and Global Leadership, along with our Engagement Agenda.

In this first issue, we feature commentaries from experts and leaders in our Domestic Excellence Center and Global Leadership Center. They show how American workers can compete in the global economy and why being involved in global health care makes sense. Together, these pieces offer a contrary view to the voices of protectionism and isolationism.

The Briefing also contains selected essays and reports from our website, recaps of Bush Center events, and reports of the Bush Center in the news. We will keep you abreast like this in every Briefing, as well as provide tips of what’s ahead for the Bush Center.

Our goal is to be an impactful, timely, and vibrant organization. As president and CEO of the Bush Center, I pledge to keep you informed about the work that is built around the timeless principles represented by President and Mrs. Bush.

-- Kenneth Hersh, President and CEO of the George W. Bush Presidential Center
