REGISTRATION IS CLOSED / WALK-INS AVAILABLE
The Central to Success Workforce Solutions Summit is a Regional Collaboration with 6 of your local Chambers of Commerce all presented by Centergy.
This Summit will address all things Workforce Development, with the purpose of bringing together regional resources to address and take action on the most significant workforce shortage our region has faced in decades. There have been workforce summits before but the focus of this event is to provide solutions, we have gotten to a point where it is no longer a shortage but has become a drought and the time is now to take action.
Collectively we can successfully maneuver this climate with private and public support, by attending this summit you will be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and connections to help you make an impact on your organization's workforce needs.
