Workforce Development Board

The Workforce Development Board (WDB) is an industry-led entity that provides policy guidance and oversight for Baltimore County's workforce development system. In addition to decision makers from companies in the County's key industry sectors, the WDB includes representatives from educational and service agencies, organized labor and community-based organizations.

The WDB ensures that plans and priorities for workforce programs reflect the current and future talent needs of local area employers. It also oversees efforts to create strategic partnerships involving private businesses, public agencies and not-for-profit organizations to advance the workforce readiness of County residents. The WDB serves as the Local Workforce Investment Board (LWIB) for Baltimore County per the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

Meetings

Meetings are typically held quarterly at a predetermined location unless otherwise noted.

Members can serve two year terms (four years), with the exception of representatives of American Job Center (AJC) partner organizations. For these members, there is no term limit. Members, board officers and committee chairs may be asked to serve in their role for multiple terms.
