New workforce board directors have many responsibilities to master for which their early career experience may not have prepared them. The New Director Bootcamp is an intensive 3-day professional development experience which provides the opportunity for new directors or those likely to become directors to learn/hone skills, access experienced leaders, and grow their professional network with others from across the nation. NAWB recognizes this as a critical offering for our industry to continue developing the workforce of workforce development leaders, and we’re delighted to have the sessions facilitated in partnership with Bob Lanter, Executive Director from the California Workforce Association and Tim Aldinger, Executive Director, Workforce Development at the Foundation for California Community Colleges, Sacramento, CA .

  • New Executive Directors

  • Deputy Directors

  • Associate Directors

  • Division Managers

  • Operation Managers

  • Anyone who has broad leadership responsibilities and/or people on a promotional track to executive positions with a focus on workforce development

Even established workforce leaders will increase their benefit from this workforce leadership capacity building training!
