Committee Co-Chairs: Dr. Roger Freeman, Littleton School District and Doug Small, Director, Strategic Partnerships at NAU
The Education and Workforce Development Committee addresses issues affecting the quality of education in the West Valley at all levels (K-12, CTE, post-secondary). The committee is keenly aware of and coordinated to enhance and implement the work of the Economic Development Committee in their efforts to support the growth of a talented workforce. This Committee works to create and strengthen connections between the business membership/community and education. They have done so through the creation of an Education Asset inventory, as well as introducing expert speakers to the conversation, leading to further committee action.
