Carol Conway is currently Deputy Director of the Southern Growth Policies Board.

She also manages two of Southern Growth’s advisory councils — the Global Strategies Council and the Council for a New Economy Workforce.
Prior to joining Southern Growth, Ms. Conway was program director on the Corporation for Enterprise Development in Washington, D.C.
In that capacity, she designed and launched the Appalachian Regional Commission’s Export Trade Advisory Council. She also co-authored “The International State: Crafting A Statewide Trade Development Systems,” an Aspen Institute book.
