A Capital Corridor event originally scheduled for Oct. 23 has been postponed. The half-day event, hosted by Des Moines Area Community College through the Capital Crossroads initiative, is titled "Meeting Our Middle Skill Needs - It's All About the Workforce." It was postponed due to one of the presenters being furloughed during the federal government shutdown. No makeup date has been announced, but officials expect the event to be held in early spring. The Capital Corridor section of the Capital Crossroads plan looks at how Ames and Des Moines can work together to brand the region as a life sciences hub.
