ADVISORIES of the executive director

Sector Advisories represent high growth/high wage/ career path sectors as defined by County economic trends. Advisories are chaired by a WIB member with membership made of private sector representatives from each cluster industry. The Advisories define workforce issues facing each sector, develop and approve Customized Training and Employer Training Panel agreements; serve as an industry advisory group for career technical training; and review WIB expenditures for training within each sector. There are two active Sector Advisories as of 2017:
