Workforce Development Policy 101
Join APWA’s Government Affairs staff for a live webinar on workforce development policy and public works! Topics will include an overview of APWA’s workforce development policy priorities, updates on current legislation in this area, and the Government Affairs Committee’s work on this important issue. Time will be left at the end of the presentation for questions.
The event will take place August 18 at 2:00 pm CT (3:00pm ET). Please RSVP to Michael Altman at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a link to the webinar. A recording will also be made available after the webinar concludes.
Though workforce challenges are universal, many agencies are creating solutions. We will scour APWA resources for tools to address these challenges and highlight them with their associated technical area.
Updates and resources will be provided on the work of APWA’s Government Affairs advocacy efforts in the area of workforce development policy. These may take the form of documents, presentations, or live webinars/panels.
