Workforce Services Committee

Mission of The Committee

The Workforce Services Committee focuses on the supply side of workforce development – workers and job seekers. It identifies the needs of job seekers and works with Partner organizations to assure coordination of services among workforce development activities and prevent duplication. The Committee provides oversight of training programs and contractors; makes funding recommendations to the Board consideration; and oversees the One-Stop Workforce Center System.
