The Central Arkansas Planning and Development District (CAPDD) and the Little Rock Workforce Development Board (LRWDB) will hold a joint Regional Partnership Meeting on February 13, 2019.
The meeting will take place at the University of Arkansas – Pulaski Technical College Business and Industry Center. CAPDD Executive Director, Rodney Larsen, and LRWDB Executive Director, W. J. Monagle, will attend along with key Board Members and workforce development staff.
The joint planning session is intended to facilitate regional planning and services delivery efforts as required under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Regional planning activities are aimed at creating a local system that meets the needs of employers, job seekers and incumbent workers.
Viewing workforce development initiatives with a regional focus should foster greater collaboration among partners and promote economic development. This meeting and other regional planning activities are made possible, in part, through a grant from the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services (ADWS).
