Event description
Ongoing demographic challenges have produced a consistent decline in the number of Vermonters in our workforce.

About this Event

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 Northeastern Vermont Development Association is hosting the workforce summit for the NEK-Newport region on October 7, 2019 at North Country Career Center.

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 is designed for employers. The afternoon program is set aside for workforce development service providers and educators. Both groups will overlap during lunch, providing the opportunity to connect and network.

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 David Snedeker, dsnedeker@nvda.net and 802.748.8303 or visit Vermontworkforce.com.
