Dear Economic and Workforce Development Leaders,
C2ER and the LMI Institute are collaborating with National Association of State and Workforce Agencies (NASWA) to facilitate nominations of State Labor Market Information (LMI) Directors, economic development leaders, Workforce Information Board representatives, academics, and business leaders to serve on the Workforce Information Advisory Council (WIAC), which was created under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
The WIAC is required to have 14 members, appointed by the Secretary of Labor, including four (4) State Workforce Agency LMI Directors, one (1) economic development leader, one (1) Workforce Board representative, one (1) academic researcher, and one (1) business leader.
Please consult the Federal Register Notice for detailed information on the membership of the WIAC, the nominations process, and the nomination requirements. A year ago, the WIAC successfully submitted recommendations to the Secretary of Labor for improving the nation’s workforce and labor market information. C2ER Board Chair, Jennifer Zeller of Georgia Power, and association member Andrew Reamer of George Washington University are among the original WIAC members who helped draft the recommendations.
