WWDA: Register today for members-only briefing on how to position your organization for workforce funding

Please join the Wisconsin Workforce Development Association (WWDA) as we welcome Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) CEO Missy Hughes and Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Secretary Amy Pechacek for a members only briefing on Wednesday, September 15. We’re excited to be able to host what will be one of the first in-depth discussions with state officials following today’s announcement on the Workforce Innovation Grant Program.

In addition to presentations from CEO Missy Hughes and Secretary Amy Pechacek, the briefing will also include participation from all 11 of the state’s local workforce development boards which are expected to receive an additional $20 million to address workforce issues in Wisconsin. 

This virtual event is exclusively available to members of the Wisconsin Workforce Development Association’s Talent Development Council (TDC). The newly re-launched TDC serves as the state’s leading convener of Wisconsin’s employers and industry trade associations around workforce development issues. 

Wisconsin’s 11 local workforce development boards are the only statewide partnership of employers, educators, and community leaders tasked with fostering economic development and high-growth opportunities in regional economies. This system exists to help businesses find qualified workers to meet their present and future workforce needs.

With more than $130 Million in recently announced funding opportunities for workforce development, connections with Wisconsin’s workforce boards are more important than ever. The Talent Develop Council is the premier platform in Wisconsin to align your organization’s workforce needs with the funding and priorities of the agencies that address them. With annual dues of $500, the TDC provides the following member only opportunities:

–       Quarterly programing and briefings from workforce influencers and regulators
–       Opportunities to connect (both in person and virtually) with Wisconsin employers and trade          
        associations seeking workforce development solutions
–       A unique ability to gain access to and influence workforce funding priorities

Members also get access to discounts on special events, including an in-person event scheduled to take place in Spring 2022. For more information on how to participate in the September 15 briefing and to learn more about benefits of membership, upcoming programing, and opportunities to better connect with Wisconsin’s local workforce development boards please contact Josh Morby by email at [email protected] or by phone at 414-791-9120.
