Local Workforce Development Board
The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) mandates that a majority of local board members come from the private sector. Representatives from various community based organizations and educational institutions that provide job-training services are also required to serve on local boards. Due to the large size of the LWIB, most of its work is done through a combination of standing committees and ad hoc taskforces.
