NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATE WORKFORCE BOARD CHAIRS
2017 WINTER MEETING and WORKFORCE SYMPOSIUM
“Working Together to Advance Economic Opportunity for All”
The National Governors Association invites you to participate in the Winter Meeting of the National Association of State Liaisons for Workforce Development Partnerships at the historic W Hotel in Washington, DC, on February 23-25, 2017.
The Winter Meeting combines our traditional State Workforce Liaisons membership meeting with a joint Workforce Symposium with the National Association of State Workforce Board Chairs. The second day of the Symposium, Saturday, February 25th, will include attending the opening plenary session at the National Governors Association Winter Meeting of governors.
This will be an ideal time to meet in Washington, DC with the start of a new Administration and Congress. You will have an opportunity to meet with members of the new Administration team and to learn of their plans to build a skilled workforce as well as learn how the new Congress plans to support this goal.
The focus will be on how states can align priorities, plans, and systems through partnerships to position their workforce systems to advance economic opportunity for all their residents. The State Workforce Liaisons will have opportunities to interact with workforce experts, discuss the key issues facing states, network with peers from across the nation on pressing workforce issues facing states and innovative solutions, and discuss the implications of the new Administration and Congress on moving forward with the promise of WIOA.
The State Workforce Liaisons meeting will convene with a luncheon at 12:00 pm on Thursday, February 23rd. A joint session with NASWA is being planned for the afternoon of the 23rd.
On Friday, February 24th, the State Liaisons will be joined by the National Association of State Workforce Board Chairs for a joint Workforce Symposium starting with a luncheon. The State Workforce Liaisons meeting will adjourn by 12:30 pm on Saturday, February 25th, following the opening plenary session at the NGA Winter Meeting of governors.
We look forward to your participation in the meeting.
