My testimony.....

Nancy Dischinat, Executive Director, Lehigh Valley Workforce Development Board, Inc.

A few months back I testified before the House Select Subcommittee on Technical Education and Career Readiness.  It was a pleasure to represent the Lehigh Valley Workforce Development Board, Inc. (LVWDB) to Chairman Grove, Chairman Harkins, and members of the committee. 

I am providing the testimony in order to stress that no matter the political climate or arguments surrounding jobs we at the LVWDB are your workforce partner that is working hard to provide programing and training for our residents in order to determine:


  1. Where are the jobs ?
  2. What are the skills necessary?
  3. What are the education requirements?


This particular testimony focused on the new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) laws. The Goal of WIOA is to improve the quality of the workforce, reduce dependency on welfare, increase self-sufficiency, meet the skills requirement of employers and enhance productivity and competitiveness.
