OLYMPIC WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL

FUNCTION

The Olympic Workforce Development Council was formed pursuant to the Federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, Public Law 105-220.  The Council works in partnership with the nine county commissioners of the Olympic Consortium Board to provide policy guidance and program oversight for WIA activities within the service delivery area of Kitsap, Clallam and Jefferson Counties.  The Council develops strategic and operational plans for the approval of the Olympic Consortium board and the Governor.

   
NUMBER OF MEMBERS / APPOINTMENT TERMS

The Council is composed of 30 members who are appointed by the Olympic Consortium Board from the three-county area. Members represent the business sector, organized labor, education, rehabilitation agencies, economic development agencies, public welfare agencies, community-based organizations, and public employment services. Most members are appointed to a three year term.

The Council is assisted by a 14-member Youth Council. Their duties include developing the youth-related portions of the local plan, recommending eligible providers of youth activities, and coordinating and overseeing youth activities offered through local providers.
