Included among those agencies and organizations represented at the hearing were the following: the American Society for Training and Development; the Committee for Economic Development; the New York State Department of Education; the Hay Group, Inc.; the Academy for Educational Development; and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
