Workforce Development Board

The Ulster County Workforce Development Board (WDB) sets workforce development policy and oversees the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding allocated to Ulster County. Ulster County Executive Michael Hein appoints the WIB which coordinates efforts regarding workforce development strategies and creates employer linkages. At least fifty percent of Board members are representatives of local businesses, with the remaining members representing educational entities, labor organizations, community based organizations, economic development agencies, and Ulster County Career Center partners.
