Workforce Development Partnership – College meets with local building industry on Verde Valley Campus to address workforce shortage

College holds brainstorming program to boost construction workforce; press releases regarding Verde (no press release) and Prescott meetings another example of the difference in how two campuses are treated

Verde Valley industry leaders met on the Verde Valley Campus on December 15 to discuss training programs to bolster the construction workforce in the Verde Valley and Sedona. The purpose of the meeting was to ask building industry representatives for help crafting a plan to develop and retain a strong workforce to meet long-term industry needs.

In contrast to the meeting on the Prescott Campus in October, the College failed to issue a press release regarding the Verde Valley meeting containing details about the number who attended and any future plans that may have came out of the meeting.
