Delaware County Workforce Development Board
The Delaware County Workforce Development Board (DCWDB) is a business-led Board that works in partnership with County Council. Our goal is to make sure that Delaware County has a dynamic and high quality workforce. We do this by working with businesses to improve the skill levels of all current and potential workers.  Please visit the DCWDB site at:

The Delaware County Workforce Development Board was established through the Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) This legislation was enacted in July of 2014 and authorizes Workforce Development Boards to establish goals for workforce programs in their local communities. Local Boards are also expected to set standards that will improve the quality of programs and services. Because it is a business-led Board, it is expected to bring best business practices to government programs and services. Briefly, the DCWDB:

Serving on the DCWDB leaders from private business, organized labor, education, economic development, human services and community-based organizations, all of whom are appointed by County Council to terms of three years. Much of the work of the DCWDB is accomplished through its Committees some of which include non-WIB members.

The Delaware County Workforce Development Board meets quarterly. These meetings are open to the public.
