RochesterWorks Announces the Appointment of Five New Monroe County-Rochester Workforce Development Board (WDB) Members
RochesterWorks announces the appointment of five area business community members to the Monroe County-Rochester Workforce Development Board (WDB).
The new WDB members are Marco Altieri, CEO, All American Home Care; Kaitlyn Bond, Senior Director of Talent Acquisition, Rochester Regional Health; Janelle Harris, Supervisor of Background/Drug Screening Services, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce; Maggie Rivera, Director DEI & Employee Experience, Paychex; and Alma Vieru, Vice President of Operations, LMT Technology Solutions.
“We are so lucky here in Monroe County to have such an amazing group of experienced and community-minded individuals on our Workforce Development Board. Our WDB has the formidable task of matching available training and workforce development funding to the needs of our local job market---as well as determining what those needs are. Our five newest board members have their fingers on the pulse of the current job market and are very aware of what is going on in our local economy. We are happy to welcome them to our team,” Dave Seeley, Executive Director, RochesterWorks.
The Monroe County-Rochester WDB, administered by RochesterWorks, is made up of 37 members of the local business community, non-profit community-based organizations, business and labor organizations, government, and institutions of higher education. The WDB is charged with the task of identifying the needs of the local job market and ensuring that allocation of workforce development resources align with the needs of our local economy. Major responsibilities of the WDB are setting policies and overseeing the implementation of $7-9 million in workforce funding, provided by the State and Federal governments.
Under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), every community in the country is required to have a local board that develops strategic plans to match employers with qualified candidates and deliver skill-based programs through One-Stop Career Centers to job-seekers. WDB board members are jointly appointed by the Monroe County Executive and the Mayor of Rochester.
