The Workforce Development and Education Committee convenes employers, educational institutions and workforce development organizations, connects chamber and community members; and champions our region's tremendous education and workforce resources to enhance economic opportunity for all in Charlotte.
Join us for our second (Q2) committee meeting of 2019. This convening will focus on workforce development in the construction industry. Hosted by Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont, the meeting will take place at the new Goodwill Construction Skills Training Center and we will discuss the partnership that was created between Goodwill, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Central Piedmont Community College and The ROC, Inc.
