Workforce Board

WIOA Local Plan 2017-2020

The Golden Sierra Workforce Board is an industry-led board of directors who identify and solve problems within key economic sectors in the tri-county region (Placer, El Dorado and Alpine). These private sector business leaders volunteer their time to assist with the coordination and alignment of a myriad of partners and products. The work they do is an investment that increases employability and business success, while creating relationships across a broad partnership.

The Workforce Board is a separate entity from the Golden Sierra Job Training Agency whose staff provide administrative assistance to the Board.
