We pledge to deliver continuous, cutting-edge technical education, foster enduring partnerships between students and employers, and implement initiatives that both attract, develop, and retain a proficient workforce in our region.
To enhance the quality of life, the career opportunities of our citizens and the robust economic growth of our region by developing, retaining, and attracting a skilled workforce for our employers.

Commenced in the April of 2018, the steering committee is employer-driven and consists of local leaders and community stakeholders. The committee supports our initiatives, collaborates on workforce development efforts, evaluates our growth, and guides our action plans. We meet 2-3 times a year to discuss our progress and plan future initiatives. The Steering Committee includes regional employers, non-profits, high schools, colleges, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development Corporations, and entrepreneurs.
