Provide Input on Workforce Planning and Development

What can be done to match workforce skills with business needs and thereby enhance economic development in Coos, Curry and Douglas Counties?  That is the question that the recently formed Southwestern Oregon Workforce Investment Board (SOWIB) will be asking in its public forums in Coos, Curry and Douglas Counties the week of January 25, 2016.

In the first step of its strategic planning effort, SOWIB is asking for input from the business community and the public input. SOWIB is charged with partnering with business, labor, education and others to create strategies that will enhance workforce skills, increase employment and support economic development.
