The Forum 2018

Presented by the National Association of Workforce Boards

Fueling Talent. Forging Change.

NAWB is the national voice for Workforce Development Boards, the regional and local business-led organizations that convene and collaborate to reduce unemployment and boost economic development by aligning Federal, State, and local investments in preparing job seekers and connecting employers with a highly-skilled workforce. NAWB defines and advocates for federal policies and funding that enable Workforce Development Boards to help businesses find and retain the talent they need to power local and regional economies. NAWB helps 500 state and local workforce boards leverage more than $8 billion in annual federal funding to support local and regional worker training initiatives that help America develop a highly-skilled workforce that can compete in the global economy.

The NAWB Forum is our signature event. It draws a national audience of roughly 1500 business leaders, workforce professionals, national and regional partners, and representatives from educational institutions, economic development, and local and state government.

Our valuable sponsors and exhibitor partners are crucial to the success of The Forum, offering innovative tools, technologies, and ideas that help our attendees accomplish their missions of meeting the needs of business and industry, upskilling the workforce, and driving economic impact in their communities. Don’t miss the opportunity to engage this important audience at a national level!
