Steering Committee

Commenced in the April of 2018, it is an employer-driven committee consisting of local leaders and community stakeholders. The committee supports our initiatives, collaborates on workforce development efforts, evaluates our growth, and guides our action plans. We meet 2-3 times a year to discuss our progress and plan future initiatives. The Steering Committee includes regional employers, non-profits, high schools, colleges, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development Corporations, and entrepreneurs.
