Event description
Join the Vermont Department of Labor and Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation for a discussion on workforce development.

About this Event

Ongoing demographic challenges have produced a consistent decline in the number of Vermonters in our workforce. As a result, Governor Phil Scott, his administration, and the regional development corporations have made workforce development a priority.

This Fall, the Regional Development Corporations (RDCs) of Vermont, in partnership with Vermont Department of Labor and the Statewide Workforce Development Board, are hosting 12 regional workforce summits. Building on recent collaborations that have taken place over the past year, these Summits will provide actionable solutions for employers and better coordination and partnerships among regional and statewide service providers and educators.

The Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation is hosting the Workforce Summit for the Franklin County region on October 22, 2019 at the St. Albans Museum.

The full day will include employers - the beneficiaries of a good workforce system - and the wide range of service providers, trainers, and educators who locate, motivate, and prepare workers to be successful. The morning program, starting at 8:45 a.m., is designed for employers. The afternoon program is set aside for workforce development service providers and educators. Both groups will overlap during lunch, when attendees will hear from special guest Governor Phil Scott as well as short presentations by Monica Green of Vermont Precision Tools and Kathy Lavoie from Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center.

We hope you will attend to lend your ideas and voice to this regional workforce conversation. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to call or email Tim Smith, Executive Director, Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation at tim@fcidc.com or 802-524-2194 or visit Vermontworkforce.com.
