    WIOA: Preparing for Success


    Wednesday, February 25th   |  1:00 PM EST


    Workforce Boards are in many different stages of readiness when it comes to WIOA implementation. In NAWB's numerous conversations with the Department of Labor, we hear more and more that boards must not wait for the rulemaking to be completed to take steps to ready their operations and infrastructure for the requirements of the new Act.  The Training and Employment Guidance Letter 19-14 outlines a vision for the workforce system and initial implementation of WIOA, stating, "State and local workforce system leaders should take immediate action to achieve the vision of modernizing the workforce system and ensuring it operates as a comprehensive, integrated, and streamlined system that expands opportunities for all workers and businesses." But what should this immediate action be?


    Byron Zuidema is the Employment and Training Administration's Deputy Asst Secretary, and is responsible for driving all technical assistance activities around the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.  On Wednesday, February 25th, Byron will join NAWB CEO and host Ron Painter for a Workforce Central interview on the Department's plans for technical assistance and guidance as workforce boards begin initial steps towards implementation. In addition, Byron will share insights on the actions boards should take now to develop their vision for their communities and regions, engage community partners at a higher level, and make sure their board infrastructure and operations are set up for success.  Don't miss this highly actionable discussion!

    WIOA: Measuring Economic Impact


    Wednesday, March 4th  |  1:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST


    WIOA calls on workforce boards to track and report some new data elements including credentials attainment, measurable skills gain, training-related costs, and employer engagement. These figures each contribute to the economic impact a board has on its community and region. Boards are in various stages of readiness to track and meet these requirements.  How can your board position itself for better and more consistent data collection, decreased lag time for reporting, and measuring the 'intangibles' like work readiness in a more meaningful way?  Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) turns labor market data into useful information that helps organizations understand the connection between economies, people, and work.  Join host Ron Painter and EMSI's consulting team for a discussion of best practices already in use by boards around the U.S. and a punch list of steps you can take now for improved measurement of your economic impact in the age of WIOA.


    Special Guests:


    Brian Points, Director of Consulting Services, EMSI


    John Hawkins, Senior Consultant, Workforce and Economic Development, EMSI

    Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker

    Elevating Business Engagement: Beyond Preparing the Job Seeker


    Preparing job seekers to get them “employment ready” with the skills to meet the needs of businesses and industry is at the core of workforce development.  However, WIOA provides the workforce system with the flexibility to elevate our game and position ourselves within regional markets to engage business as a customer (with business services), as a partner (in sector strategies, apprenticeships, work-based learning) and even as a funder (to invest and leverage).   “It’s not about business learning workforce development; it’s about us learning business and translating that into our vernacular and our world—I think this is critical,” said NAWB President/CEO Ron Painter  in a recent video that focuses on WIOA and Business U. 


    Join Ron Painter for the Workforce Central Radio show at 1:00 PM EST on Wednesday, February 18th, as he interviews the executive leadership team from Business U in an exciting discussion about how workforce boards can make these key shifts to elevate business engagement in their regions.

    Dr Deane Waldman, Author - The Cancer In Healthcare

    in Health

    Author Dr. Deane Waldman did his homework; as University of Chicago’s former head of pediatric cardiology he knows that our healthcare system is sick and in desperate need of a emergancy care.


    According to his book “The Cancer In Healthcare: How Greed Is Killing What We Love,” healthcare itself has become a very sick patient, with the cancer of greed and bureaucracy adversely affecting doctors and patients alike. “Something is very wrong ... and though some blame insurance companies, hospitals or government, there is something far more insidious at work and Americans need to know the truth.” Dr. Waldman is working at the grass roots level to start a larger national dialog to talk about what good patient care should look like and how we can over-hall a top-heavy bureaucratic system to one that allows doctors to give real patient care. In short: he wants to put the ‘care’ back in healthcare.


    “You are no longer a sick patient in need of healthcare. You are now a revenue source for doctor and hospital, a 
    consumer of big pharma products and an expense item for insurance under our current system. Worse of all, you 
    have become a vote-for-sale in Washington says Dr.Waldman.
