Local Elected Officials

A chief elected official, such as a County Mayor,  appoints members to sit on the Board of NETLWDB. As a result, county elected officials have an important opportunity to appoint cross-sector representatives that are active in the research, analysis, program development and coordination across the entire workforce system.  Counties can thus ensure that the NETLWDB includes members that best represent particular needs and business growth in their communities and within the region.
