Effective date: July 1, 2017
After initial establishment, each local WDB must be recertified by the State once every two (2) years.
Recertification shall be granted to one (1) local WDB in each designated local area based on the following criteria:
In cases where local WDBs fail to achieve recertification, the Governor shall appoint a compliant WDB following the process outlined in WIOA Section 107(c)(1)(B)(ii).
Local WDBs may be decertified in certain cases, including when:
If a local WDB is decertified, the Governor, in consultation with the CEO in the local area, may issue a reorganization plan and require that a new board be appointed per the criteria established in the Local WDB Membership and Criteria section 1.4.8.
When subject to reorganization, the local board and CEO for a local area have 30 days after receiving notice of the reorganization plan to appeal to the Governor to rescind or revise the plan. The Governor must provide the CEO with a ruling within 30 days of receiving the appeal. The local board and CEO have 30 days from the date of receiving the Governor's ruling to file an appeal with the Secretary of Labor. The Secretary must make a final decision with 30 days of receiving the appeal. However, the Governor's ruling will be effective at issuance, and will remain effective unless rescinded or revised by the Secretary of Labor. 3
