Love Your Workforce: Local Innovations in Workforce Development

  • SVC-212, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Despite a historically low unemployment rate, many jobs today remain unfilled. The local workforce system is an effective, locally-driven model that provides public and private-sector leaders with the opportunity to custom design programs and deploy funding to meet the unique needs of their regional labor markets. Additionally, these efforts support the activities of countless industry sectors, education providers and local school districts.

On February 14, the National Association of Counties (NACo), National League of Cities (NLC), National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB) and The U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) will bring together cities, counties, and workforce board leaders to share how they are driving innovation in workforce development at the local level to provide America with a highly skilled workforce that competes in the global economy.

Moderator:

  • Christopher Cabaldon, Mayor of West Sacramento, California and Chair, The U.S. Conference of Mayors Jobs, Education and the Workforce Standing Committee

Featured Panelists Include:

  • David Remick, Executive Director, Alexandria/Arlington Regional Workforce Council

  • Robin Arredondo-Savage, Council Member of Tempe, Arizona and Chair, National League of Cities Human Development Committee

  • Pamela E. Lancaster, Supervisor of Hall County, Nebraska and Chair, National Association of Counties Community, Economic and Workforce Development Steering Committee – Workforce Subcommittee
