WIOA presents the opportunity for us to re-think the way we serve our customers. We have a chance to redesign our systems, our processes, even our brick and mortar centers. Your region may already be tackling big issues and tough questions.

July 1 is approaching fast, and it seems like we’re all looking at the same summer plans: half of us are focusing on the specific details in the statute and half are focused on the big ideas (how do we provide value to economic development in our region?) How do we manage it all? Big changes require big thinking.
