NGA Hosts Summer Workforce Symposium at Fargo


With Governors focused on aligning workforce and economic development activities across their states, NGA’s Summer Workforce Symposium brought together state leaders, including North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, to focus on developing a skilled workforce and expanding economic opportunity. The symposium also marked the launch of NGA’s Workforce Strategic Planning Collaborative, a new joint effort between NGA and the U.S. Department of Labor.

The NGA Center for Best Practices hosted the Summer Workforce Symposium of National Association of State Liaisons for Workforce Development Partnerships, and the National Association of State Workforce Boards Chairs, in Fargo North Dakota from August 8-10.

The symposium brought together leaders in workforce development from more than 20 states. These leaders carry out their Governor’s vision for workforce development policy, strategic investment, and the administration and oversight of federal and state workforce programs. Participants were given the chance to discuss challenges, best practices and engage in discussion with other participants.
