Chief Elected Officials Consortium

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires a Chief Elected Officials Consortium (Consortium) to establish and oversee Local Workforce Development Areas.  The Consortium is comprised of the Mayor or Board Chair of each local government in the Local Workforce Development Area.  The Consortium’s primary responsibilities are to:

  • Designate a member jurisdiction to serve as the local grant recipient for WIOA funds
  • Receive nominations and make appointments to the SVWDB Board of Directors
  • Support the SVWDB in fiscal and program oversight
  • Act as a connection to local economic development to help align the public workforce system with the regional economy
