Workforce Development Board

Workforce Development Board

WorkSource Fulton, also known as Fulton County Workforce Development is governed by our Workforce Development Board and is comprised of representatives from the W.I.O.A. mandated partners, business community and other relevant organizations.  The infrastructure includes several Board Committees that work with the WorkSource Fulton staff to develop plans, policies and procedures for different components of the System.  Each Board Committee is chaired by a Board member and is comprised of Board members, with special emphasis on representation from the business community, officers of the Board and required partners.  All Board Committee documents that are developed must go to the full Workforce Development Board or the Executive Committee for review and approval.

Task Force Committees

Strategic Partnerships and Outreach – Responsible for identifying strategic opportunities for the Board to engage and collaborate with organizations serving job seekers in Fulton County. The Committee will recommend programs and strategies for serving special populations and strategic communities in Fulton, including providing resources and strategies to serve individuals with disabilities, develop and promote outreach messaging to enhance the WorkSource Fulton brand, and incorporate regional initiatives into the Fulton service delivery model. 

Finance Committee
- Responsible for reviewing and providing guidance for the organization’s financial matters. The Committee will regularly review the organization's revenues and expenditures, ensure that organizational funds are spent appropriately and approve the annual budget and submit it to the full Board for approval.

Performance and Accountability
- Responsible for preparing and updating the Board's Local Action Plan; reviewing the needs of the local labor market; developing strategic plans; reviewing program performance; establishing and benchmarking performance measures for the system; reviewing on-site program contractor monitoring reports; assisting with the review and recommendations on Memorandums of Understanding and Request for Proposals. Responsible for developing and updating "Individual Training Account' (ITA) policies and procedures; and developing and updating training provider certification and monitoring where appropriate. Responsible for providing information and assisting with operational and other issues relating to the one- stop delivery system, which may include as members representatives of the one-stop partners.

Youth Standing Committee - The Fulton County Workforce Development Board designated the Youth Council to be formally known as the Youth Standing Committee under WIOA Section 107 (b)(4). Members of the Youth Standing Committee who are not members of the Board will be full voting members of the Youth Standing Committee, but non-voting members of the Board. Youth Standing Committee members, who are not full members of the Board, may attend Board meetings. Members shall include community- based organizations (CBOs) with a demonstrated record of success in serving eligible youth and other individuals with appropriate expertise and experience who are not members of the Board and may also include parents, participants and youth. The Committee is to inform and assist the Board in developing and overseeing a comprehensive youth program. They may participate in the applicable deliberations of the Board on the issues related to their Youth Standing Committee functions and make recommendations for providers of youth workforce activities through competitive grants or contracts, however, if the Board determines there is an insufficient number of eligible providers in a local area, the Board may award contracts on a sole-source basis as per the provisions at WIOA sec. 123(b).

Executive Committee
– The Executive Committee will exercise authority and manage the business of the LWDB during intervals between board meetings. The officers serve as members of the Executive Committee, except for the power to amend the policies and the Bylaws.
