NC Community Colleges Launch Align4NCWorks

Learning Summits Focused on Identifying Best Practices and Barriers in Workforce Development

Workforce plays a key role in the location, retention and global competitiveness of businesses in 2014. The North Carolina Community College System is launching a strategic planning initiative focused on ensuring North Carolina’s workforce is number one in the nation. The state’s community colleges are designated in North Carolina General Statutes (N.C.G.S. §115D-1) as “…the primary lead agency for delivering workforce development training…”

However, workforce efforts in the state involve many partners and Governor Pat McCrory recently announced a new workforce development initiative to bring a more strategic focus to those efforts. “Align4NCWorks” is both a strategic planning endeavor and NC community colleges’ ongoing response to better align those partners by convening community colleges and workforce partners for a series of learning summits, held across the state, to discuss best practices and challenges and to identify strategies to bring North Carolina’s workforce development into alignment. The objectives are increased responsiveness, better engagement and ultimately greater accountability to stakeholders.

WHAT: Align4NCWorks Learning Summit
WHERE: Stanly Community College, Kelley Building, Dennis Auditorium
WHEN: October 8, 8 AM
WHO: Dr. R. Scott Ralls, President, N.C. Community College System
Dr. Brenda Kays, President, Stanly Community College
Dr. Stan Sidor, President, South Piedmont Community College

Media will be provided an opportunity for interviews following the learning summit.
