1.1.2 Council, Committee Structure, and Responsibilities
Effective date: October 20, 2022
The Governor appoints members of the Council in accordance with the requirements enumerated in 20 CFR 679.110(b)(3) of WIOA, which includes representatives of business, local and state government, education, labor, and community-based organizations across the state. Members serve at the pleasure of the Governor and assist Wisconsin's Department of Workforce Development (DWD) in crafting a comprehensive workforce development strategy that:
- Anticipates employer labor needs while building and strengthening Wisconsin's workforce;
- Supports the development of a highly skilled labor forced; and
- Empowers individuals of all backgrounds to pursue and retain good paying careers.
The Council is currently comprised of an Executive Committee and three standing committees which provide a formalized structure for workforce members and stakeholders to actively participate in the maintenance, support, and refinement of the system's activities.
