Schedule for the Week of February 21, 2011

On Tuesday, the President and members of his cabinet will travel to Cleveland, Ohio, where the White House will convene a Winning the Future Forum on Small Business in association with Cleveland State University and northeast Ohio economic development organizations JumpStart and NorTech. In his State of the Union address, President Obama spoke of the need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build our competitors in order to sustain our leadership and secure prosperity for all Americans. The Forum will be an opportunity for the President and his economic team to hear directly from small business owners and leaders about their ideas for how America can continue to grow the economy, put Americans back to work, and win the future.

On Wednesday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

On Thursday, the President will hold a meeting with the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness at the White House. In the evening, the President and the First Lady will invite music legends and contemporary major artists to the White House on Thursday, February 24, 2011, for "The Motown Sound: In Performance at the White House," a concert celebrating Black History Month and the legacy of Motown Records. Earlier in the day, the First Lady will welcome more than 100 students from California, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota and Washington, D.C. to take part in an interactive student workshop event: "The Sound of Young America: The History of Motown" where featured performers from the evening event will share their experiences as well as answer student questions.

On Friday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.
