Board Operations

Operations and Subcommittees
Coastal Counties Workforce, Inc. (CCWI) performs its responsibilities for and through a network of three required boards, a council and a regional One-Stop Operator. There exists the business-led Coastal Counties Workforce Board, also known as the Local Workforce Development Board, the county commissioner-led Chief Elected Officials (CEO) board, and a CCWI Corporate Board of Directors. Our board structure also includes a Youth Standing Committee and One-Stop Operator overseeing a coordinated approach to service delivery in our region. Working in concert, our boards, council, Operator, and CCWI staff oversee the delivery of workforce services relevant to the region’s local residents and businesses.

Workforce Board

To ensure that the workforce system is focusing on the regional economy, the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) creates a system where states are divided into one or more workforce areas, controlled by a local workforce development board. Local boards have several important functions in the public workforce system. These business-led boards provide oversight for the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act programs, act as a catalyst to provide seamless services among various workforce programs, and provide community leadership around workforce issues.

By law, more than 50 percent of each workforce development board is made up of employer representatives from the community. Our Local Board represents businesses and is always interested in hearing from employers about their workforce needs, growth opportunities, and ways they would like to partner.

If your private business is interested in joining our board, please contact us for more information about board membership.
