The Board of Directors of the International Association of Workforce Professionals and committee chairpersons completed several days of meetings last week focused on member needs and the future of the association.  Prior to the board meeting, the conference committee met to plan for the 104th annual conference scheduled on June 18-21, 2017 in Costa Mesa, California.

In order to build upon the success of the meeting, the board decided to continue working on several projects to accomplish goals before its next meeting. Several participants expressed pleasure with the accomplishments made during the meetings and expressed excitement over the positive changes taking place.

More detailed information will be posted on the website and included in the Chapter Countdown as the groups solidify their recommendations and get feedback from the members they serve.
