Event Details

2013 Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership Workshop
June 12-13, 2013

The LED Partnership is a collaborative partnership between state data agencies and the Census Bureau to leverage existing data in the development of new sources of economic and demographic information for policy makers and data users. The workshop provides professional development and networking for Labor Market Information directors, data analysts and data providers at state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and other data users.

The theme for this year’s workshop is Working Together. We will be highlighting the work of our state LMI partners and other state and local data users through plenary and breakout sessions. By popular demand, this year’s workshop will also feature hands-on training opportunities.

A block of hotel rooms has been set aside for those traveling from outside the Washington DC area. If you would like information on booking a room, you may request it during the registration process.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please call Melodee Mabbitt at (734) 769-2900, or email mmabbitt@skilledwork.org.
