California Workforce Association Conference - September 2013

Building the New Workforce is our theme for the 2013 Meeting of the Minds Conference (MMM), and it's an invitation to reinvent how we do business in an environment of explosive changes in employment levels, workforce composition, and talent demands in virtually every industry. The Conference explores new trends, innovative concepts and emerging practices in workforce development, especially in light of funding challenges. MMM is about strategic thinking and making our work more relevant and meaningful to our communities--to be doing more of what matters in every way. Not only will we have some great sessions and speakers, but we have set aside specially designated times that will enable you to meet in design groups to take what you are learning and develop innovative approaches that fit your region.

MMM has a long tradition in breaking the mold, and bringing new thinking from other worlds that is relevant to our workforce development efforts. I promise, this year's conference will not disappoint.

See you in Monterey! Bob Lanter

We are pleased to extend early bird registration rates until COBMonday, July 15th. Bring a team of key partners from your community and use dedicated times during design group meetings to develop innovative approaches relevant to your region that you can actually implement. Click here to register.

Effective workforce and economic development strategies require an increasingly detailed understanding of your regional labor market. MMM will feature a Symposium on Real Time Labor Market Information, embedded within the Conference. The Symposium will feature many of the new LMI tools that have been developed to aggregate, summarize and analyze the increasing amounts of available information from (big) data sources. More importantly, the Symposium will also demonstrate how you can use these tools to develop a functional profile of your regional labor market that allows workforce investment boards and community college consortiums to do more of what matters for employers and job seekers. See Conference Agenda for more details.
