Governor Names Members Of Indiana Career Council
July 10, 2013 — Governor Mike Pence says he wants the newly-created Indiana Career Council to act with urgency as it looks for ways to improve the preparedness and skill level of Indiana’s workforce. As Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Brandon Smith reports, the governor Tuesday named appointees to the four remaining unfilled positions on the council:
The Indiana Career Council, created by legislation unanimously approved by the General Assembly last session, will meet for the first time later this month. Governor Mike Pence says the council’s mission is to develop ideas for transformational change in the state’s workforce development efforts:
“By creating a new forum that will encourage greater collaboration between a broad range of state agencies and, even more importantly, private sector partners.”
Pence says the council will help align and coordinate regional workforce training and education systems. Members of the council include leaders from the state’s manufacturing and life sciences industries, labor representatives, lawmakers and state agency directors.
