The purpose of the initial meeting was to take the first step toward developing a concerted, coordinated community-wide effort to identify and seek solutions to the obstacles that impede individuals from obtaining and retaining employment. The intent is for a series of meetings to follow that will create and implement action steps by early fall. All agencies that attended the first one, as well as others interested in workforce development, are invited to attend. Executive Director Paula Fowler said, “People interested in this critical effort are welcome to join us.”

RSVPs to the Chamber office at (859) 236-2361, ext. 120, are encouraged.
