 2020-2024 Plan

The Olympic Workforce Development Council (OWDC) is comprised of businesses, labor representatives, public sector leaders, education and training providers. In conjunction with the Olympic Consortium Board, comprised of our three-county Commissioners, the OWDC staff collaborated to develop a local plan that align programs and services with the needs of our regional industry sectors, driving economic development and job growth.

To ensure a cohesive local plan, OWDC staff presented a draft plan to a panel of 5 OWDC members for their review and feedback on February 11, 2020. Feedback was incorporated into the draft plan and released for a 30-day public comment period.

Following the public comment period, the plan was presented to the Olympic Consortium Board for approval and submission to Workforce Training & Education Coordinating Board on April 17, 2020.

On May 12, 2020, OWDC executive director received acknowledgement letter of Olympic Consortium's local plan submission.
