Ohio Delegation set for 2015 NSC Skills Summit

Several Ohio workforce development practitioners have been selected to join colleagues from across the country to connect, learn and advocate at the National Skills Coalition’s 2015 Skills Summit. Participants will learn about key funding and policy issues like the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act implementation, new job-driven training investments, and pending higher education and career & technical education reauthorizations; new changes to the federal SNAP Employment and Training program; sector partnerships; state-based policy efforts; and effective communication and advocacy tactics. The Summit runs from Feb. 8 through Feb. 10 and includes a full day of meetings with policymakers and staff on Capitol Hill. These meetings will be particularly timely with a new Congress and gives the Ohio delegation a chance to educate elected officials about workforce development efforts and best practices occurring in Ohio.

Individuals from Ohio include:
* Kerrie Carte, WSOS CAC/Ohio Workforce Coalition
* Cheryl Hay, Columbus State Community College/ Ohio Board of Regents
* Margaret Hulbert, United Way of Greater Cincinnati
* Sherry Kelley Marshall, SWORWIB
* Rebecca Kusner, Towards Employment
* Robert Paponetti, The Literacy Cooperative
* Liza Smitherman, Jostin Construction, Inc.
* Chikere Uchegbu, United Way of Greater Cincinnati
