Dear Workforce Development Professional,

The workforce investment system’s recent transition to a demand-driven system at the
federal, state and local level requires a new level of collaboration from all workforce
stakeholders. The new demand-driven and high-growth system calls for partnerships
between the workforce investment system, employers, community colleges and other
training providers. By enhancing the capacity of workforce institutions, One-Stops,
employers and colleges can effectively train workers to develop the skills required to
succeed in high growth/high demand industries.

To help you design, measure and market your workforce products and services to
achieve the desired outcomes for your One-Stop and workforce development programs,
please join us for the 2006 Workforce Development Week, November 6-9, 2006 in
Arlington, VA.
Day 1: One-Stop Performance
Collaborate with businesses, industry and educational institutions to effectively
match employment services to your clients’ needs. Improve One-Stop service delivery
by linking performance measures to assessment and training tools.
Day 2: Employer Outreach & Workforce Marketing
Develop outreach programs with a clearly defined strategy among all members to
build value in One-Stops, support operational goals and drive business customers to
try services. Create an internal outreach program that segments businesses, builds
brand awareness and creates values among the business community.
Day 3: Demand-Driven Workforce Strategies
Effectively work with employers to establish partnerships and business relationships
to match employees to jobs in high-growth industries. Develop key partnerships
with the public workforce system, business and industry, education and training
providers and economic development agencies.
Day 4: Performance Measures for Workforce Development
Devise and implement performance measures to evaluate and streamline workforce
and placement services. Learn how to design, document and report WIA performance
measures to enhance client tracking, data collection and outcome reporting.
After attending this week, you will walk away with the tools and skills necessary to

strategic. Register for this training today by calling 703-894-0481 or visit us online
