Upcoming Conference to Look at Workforce Innovations
The latest initiatives, federal policy developments and practices in workforce investment will be showcased at the Workforce Innovations 2004 conference in San Antonio on July 19-21. The annual event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Association of Workforce Boards.
A highlight of this year’s conference, the largest of its kind in the nation, will be an address by U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao on recent workforce initiatives. Among those programs is “Skills to Build America’s Future,” an effort designed to promote careers in the skill trades that was announced by Chao at a press conference in April attended by NAHB President Bobby Rayburn and other construction industry leaders.
More than 2,100 workforce investment professionals are expected to be at this year’s conference.
