ABOUT US

Al Danish, Chairman

The Delaware County Workforce Development Board (DCWDB) is a business-led Board that works in partnership with County Council. Our goal is to make sure that Delaware County has a dynamic and high quality workforce. We do this by working with businesses to improve the skill levels of all current and potential workers.
 

  • We offer Employers, regardless of industry, the tools to improve their entire workforce.

  • We connect Delaware County Job Seekers to jobs as well as helpful information about employers in Delaware County.

  • We connect job seekers to a wide number of state, county and local organizations that provide education, job training and social services.
     

The Delaware County WDB was established through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA.) Federal Workforce Investment Act. This legislation was enacted in July 2014 and authorizes WDBs to establish goals for workforce programs in their local communities.  WDB's are also expected to set standards that will improve the quality of programs and services. Because it is a business-led Board, it is expected to bring best business practices to government programs and services. Briefly, the WDB:
 

  • Provides leadership on the critical workforce issues identified in the WDB's community-wide Strategic Plan.

  • Reaches out to the community to deliberate on key workforce issues.

  • Motivates the many organizations responsible for carrying out the goals and action steps.

  • Oversees programs and services to ensure high quality performance.
     

Serving on the WDB are 39 leaders from private business, organized labor, education, economic development, human services and community-based organizations , all of whom are appointed by County Council to terms of three years. Much of the work of the WDB is accomplished through its Committees some of which include non-WDB members.


The Delaware County WDB meets quarterly. These meetings are open to the public.
