Workforce Development Board
The Winona County Workforce Development Board works together to understand the current and future needs of businesses and job seekers and then develops plans for using federal employment and training funding to meet those needs.
Made up of representatives from business, education, organized labor, community-based organizations, economic development agencies, local elected officials and others, the WIB shapes and oversees employment and training, vocational rehabilitation, youth, dislocated worker and other programs funded through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
The Workforce Development Board (Winona Workforce Council) is usually scheduled to meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 a.m. at the WorkForce Center. Meeting dates may be changed up to one week in advance or due to an emergency. They are usually recessed for June, July and August unless a special meeting is called.
The Winona Workforce Development Board's agendas and official meeting minutes are available in the Resource Area at the Winona WorkForce Center. The public is welcome to view this information during regular office hours.
