Region 1 Workforce Development Board (R1WDB)
The Region I WDB (also known as the Full Board) was established to design and implement a system to match up the abilities local job seekers are attaining with the skills that local employers want for their businesses. The Region I WDB also approves members that serve on the Youth Committee.
The board consists of individuals from business, community-based organizations, economic development, education, labor, and One-Stop partner agencies. The business sector represents fifty-one percent (51%) of the total R1WDB membership. The board chair is required to be from the business sector. Membership must include individuals from each of the following sectors: community-based, economic development, education, and labor. In addition, each One-Stop partner must be represented on the R1WDB. The Region I WDB has quarterly meetings, which are open to the public.
