Rural Community Vitality Forum Travels to Quincy

Workforce Training and Education Coordinating BoardThe Washington Workforce Training & Education Coordinating Board is touring rural Washington State to hear from local residents about the workforce needs in their community.

The board has already visited Toppenish and Aberdeen, but will still visit Colville on May 14th and Quincy on May 16th.

This listening forum is open to all residents: employers, educators, service-providers, elected officials, jobseekers, concerned citizens to share their perspective on how Washington can keep the rural economies strong and vibrant.
The Workforce Board is working with the US Department of Labor facilitators to organize a listening tour in rural communities.

During the sessions, participant comments will be recorded to help craft next steps for Washington State. After comments from all four sessions are complied, residents will have a chance to provide additional input before a report is provided to state and federal policymakers.

A statewide webcast will also be organized for later this summer.

Please join this forum in Quincy on May 16th from 9:30AM to 2:30PM. Lunch will be provided. Starting at 7:30AM a breakfast will be available to participants.
