Agencies co-host public meetings Feb. 18 in multiple locations

BISMARCK – Public input is sought on a proposed strategy for meeting North Dakota’s workforce needs.

Job Service North Dakota, North Dakota’s Department of Commerce, Department of Public Instruction and the Department of Human Services’ Vocational Rehabilitation Division have drafted a Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Unified State Plan and are inviting employees, working age adults and other stakeholders to review it and submit comments.

The plan outlines the state’s four-year strategy for meeting workforce needs through programs and services offered by the public workforce development system. The network of agencies that make up this system provide employment, education, training and related services and supports.

A meeting will be held Feb. 18 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. People can participate at the North Dakota Job Services regional office in Bismarck or by video conference at Job Service offices in Devils Lake, Dickinson, Fargo, Grand Forks, Jamestown, Minot, Wahpeton and Williston.

Individuals unable to attend can also review the plan online at www.jobsnd.com/stateplan2019 and can direct questions and comments to Phil Davis, Workforce Services Director, Job Service North Dakota, 1000 E. Divide Ave., P.O. Box 5507, Bismarck, ND 58506-5507. They also may call 328-5040 or 711 (TTY) for TTY customers, or email to pndavis@nd.gov. All comments must be received on or before Feb. 21.

Individuals who need accommodations to participate in the meeting can contact Robyn Throlson with the Vocational Rehabilitation Division at 328-8955, 711 (TTY) or rthrolson@nd.gov prior to the meeting.
