Meet the Board

“The Capital Region Workforce Development Board serves an important role in addressing local employment needs.

 

The Board develops an annual regional workforce plan working with the NYS Department of Labor to establish workforce priorities and identify resources to address workforce issues.

 

The board further works to support the efforts of the Capital Region Economic Development Committee by supporting the region’s strategic plan.”

 

— Mark Westcott, Vice Chair of the Board
