The Workforce Connection Board
The Workforce Connection, Inc. Board was created by federal workforce legislation to, in partnership with the Local Elected Officials, plan and oversee the local workforce development system in Boone, Stephenson and Winnebago Counties.
The mission of The Workforce Connection Board is to create a competitive, skilled and educated workforce by providing a system for individuals to gain meaningful employment responsive to the needs of business.
The One Stop Centers in Rockford. Freeport and Belvidere provide one contact for employers to find workers and for job-seekers to receive training, education and employment services.
The Workforce Connection Board generally meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00am at the Regional Design Center, 315 N. Main Street in Rockford. Meeting notices, agendas and minutes are posted as they become available. Click here for Board Meeting schedule.
