He will bring exciting news concerning a new program for workforce development in our region and especially in New Albany and Union County. You will not want to miss this event. Plant managers are encouraged to bring your HR directors to this event. A brief description of the program is as follows:

“Filling the Workforce Gap-Mississippi Partnership’s Sector Strategy Plan”

“The presentation will explain the Sector Strategy Plan developed by the Mississippi Partnership Local Workforce Development Board and the specific details of how partnering with the New Albany and Union County school systems and Community Colleges will prepare the future workforce and place them in the pipeline to careers that meet the work skills needed by Union County Business and industry.”
