Workforce Pipeline Forums

August 28, 2017 by Anonymous

SNOWFLAKE — Finding workers with the proper skill sets can be a challenge for employers, especially in rural northeastern Arizona. One solution is to develop a local workforce pipeline.

Employers can learn about resources available for developing that pipeline at a free forum on Tuesday, September 12, from 7:30 to 10 a.m., at Northland Pioneer College’s Snowflake/Taylor – Silver Creek Campus, Learning Center Symposium, 1611 S. Main St.

“Employers will learn about the services already in place to help them find qualified workers, plus exchange ideas with agency representatives, educators and other employers on what skill sets are needed in local workers,” explains John Spadaccini, NPC’s manager of Career Services. “This will also be an excellent opportunity for members of NPC’s various vocational career training advisory boards to gather input from other businesses and industries.” The forum is co-sponsored by ARIZONA@WORK and NPC Career Services.

Panelists will include:

  • Stephanie Ray, Assistant Economic/Workforce Development Director, ARIZONA@WORK – Northeastern Arizona Workforce Development Board;
  • Tanya Baker, Workforce Specialist, ARIZONA@WORK – Northeastern Arizona;
  • Peter Tosi, Regional II Supervisor, ARIZONA@WORK;
  • Marti Landis Jones and Theresa Bukowski, RSA Representatives, Arizona Department of Economic Security – Rehabilitation Services Administration; and
  • Gail Campbell, NPC’s Associate Dean of Education, College and Career Preparation programs.

For additional information, please contact John Spadaccini, (928) 536-6246 or email.
