Gov. Cox’s One Utah Summit is coming up on May 10, 2022, at The Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. It will be Gov. Cox’s first One Utah Summit in Northern Utah. The state’s southern One Utah Summit was held last October at Southern Utah University. The new One Utah Summit series will alternate northern and southern locations every six months, providing opportunities to discuss the day’s important topics and how government and the private sector work together to create an even better Utah, with economic opportunity and unparalleled quality of life for Utahns.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity is responsible for the governor’s One Utah Summit series. In this episode, part one of the entire conversation, you’ll hear from Go Utah’s Executive Director Dan Hemmert, the Utah Office of Energy Development’s Executive Director Thom Carter, and First Lady Abby Cox.

The Go Utah and Energy teams partner in organizing and presenting the One Utah Summit. First Lady Abby Cox joins the conversation because, for the first time, the summit will include an opportunity for participants to give back by donating time and money as part of the First Lady’s #ShowUpForService initiative. Summit organizers have planned afternoon service activities, including:

  • Service projects assembling food and hygiene kits and student supply backpacks,
  • Visiting with Utah nonprofits to learn more about their work and find ways to engage, and
  • Participating in a new children’s book drive.
