Developing and maintaining a skilled workforce is a vital component to our region's success in the global market.
The educational institutions in our area are excellent. The challenge,
especially in Higher Education, is that all of our institutions are

fallen behind the accelerating demand. In partnership with our
institutions of higher learning and our national and state legislators,
the Chamber is focusing on this issue in our Joint Government Affairs
Workforce Development Council
