CLEO Coordinating Committee and NW WDB Executive Committee Conference Call

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that each Workforce Development Board, in partnership with the Chief Local Elected Officials (CLEOs), develops a local plan for their respective Workforce Development Board region.  As such, and in order to meet the deadline established by Missouri Office of Workforce Development, we will hold a meeting in open session via conference call for review of the Local Plan.  

The call will be on Monday, February 17, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.  The call-in number for our conference call is 866-906-0040; participant code 7141429#

I realize this may be a holiday for some, but I hope you will join the hour-long call to provide input and feedback on the NW WDB PY2020 – PY2023 Local Plan. The meeting announcement is available for download below.

The plan in its entirety is available for download at the bottom of this announcement. Also available for download below are the narrative section and the newly-developed MOU/IFAs that were presented to the Board Executive Committee and CLEO Coordinating Committee.
