Chief Elected Officials Consortium

WIOA requires a Chief Elected Officials Consortium (Consortium) to establish and operate 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

Chief Elected Officials Consortium Agreement *UPDATE*

At an October 19, 2018 meeting of the Chief Elected Officials Consortium, an updated Chief Elected Officials Consortium Agreement was presented to Consortium members for consideration.  The revised agreement was approved for distribution to Chief Elected Officials for review.  Feedback was received from local governments and a recommendation was made that the revised Consortium Agreement be reviewed by an attorney and modified to comply local government statutes.  Document revisions are being finalized and a revised Chief Elected Consortium Agreement will be distributed to the member localities for consideration in April 2019 with a goal of having the agreement fully executed by May 2019.
