Workforce Investment Board Publishes Recommendations

The Montgomery County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) has prepared, “Recommendation for a High Performing Workforce Development System for Montgomery County.”  This report is the culmination of a comprehensive process to develop recommendations for transforming the WIB into the primary driver for cultivating and organizing workforce development efforts in Montgomery County. The recommendations are based on best practices from across the country and are the result of hundreds of conversations between WIB members and stakeholders from the business community, government agencies and elected bodies, and community organizations that focus on workforce development activities.

The WIB presented the report and recommendations to the PHED Committee of the Montgomery County Council on December 4, 2014.

A copy of the report is available online for download (Adobe Acrobat, available for free, is required).
