Currituck County Economic Development Director Larry Lombardi has been appointed as Chairman of the Business Resources & Opportunities Committee (BROC) on the Northeastern Workforce Development Board (NWDB).
The Northeastern Workforce Development Board (NWDB) is a 19-member board appointed by the Chief Elected Officials (county commissioners) of each of the ten counties in our region.
The purpose of the NWDB is to provide policy, planning and oversight for local workforce development programs and to address workforce issues as identified by the communities that they represent.
The NWDB is responsible for designing a service delivery system that meets the needs of local businesses who are trying to find qualified applicants to fill their employment openings by providing training scholarships to those individuals who are eligible and basic employment services and referrals to those who are not.
The board has five committees – Leadership, NextGen Youth, Career Center, Business Resources & Opportunities, and Finance. Volunteers are always welcome.
