The Chamber’s Workforce Training & Education Committee has brought together business leaders, employers, educators and local employment-related organizations in an effort to address two very important issues. First, our county’s ability to provide a skilled, quality workforce for existing and prospective employers. And second, to ensure that our local schools are providing information, training and guidance so that students learn about job opportunities and know what they must do in order to become gainfully employed. From soft skills to industry specific training, we must work together on workforce development to grow and improve as a community.
To that end, it’s crucial that we gather information from our local businesses – all sizes and types. Please take a moment to complete a brief online survey that will help us in our efforts. Begin by clicking here and keep in mind that you may choose to remain anonymous if you wish.
Also, please consider joining this important committee or allowing an employee of yours to participate. We must have representation from local employers and industry leaders if we are to address their labor needs. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Chamber offices at 1:30 p.m.. Email Tricia Maple-Damewood at the email address below with questions, to become a part of this important committee or to be sent the survey via regular mail.
