Workforce Development Board Name Change
A consortium of elected officials serving Caswell, Davie, Forsyth, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin counties voted in June 2018 to change the Workforce Board name. Effective July 1, 2018, Northwest Piedmont Workforce Development Board's name changed to Piedmont Triad Regional Workforce Development Board.
Wendy Walker-Fox, Workforce Development Director states, "We are excited about changes at Piedmont Triad Regional Workforce Development Board in the upcoming year! I believe that the new name will more accurately describe the area we serve and also alleviate some of the confusion that resulted with the previous name. We believe the new name will be more recognizable to employers and partners around our region."
