Holshouser Legislators Retreat 2015

The 2015 Governor Jim Holshouser Legislators Retreat took place yesterday. I managed to capture some of the topics via Twitter from the hashtag #HLR2015. The main theme gleaned from it appears to be your kids are “human capitol” which is the “life bud” of business:
