Workforce Development Boards
Texas' Workforce Development Boards exist to develop local plans for the use of Workforce Investment Act funding, provide oversight and governance of the delivery of services at the local level, and coordinate with employers, chambers of commerce, and other organizations in their given local areas. The Boards consist largely of local community leaders who are appointed specifically by local elected officials. Board members come from disparate backgrounds, ranging from community business leaders to professionals in community organizations, educational institutions, organized labor, public assistance agencies, and many others.
