|Faculty asked to announce focus group on keeping young workers in North Dakota|
College students are the future leaders of the North Dakota business community. On Wednesday, April 9, the Legislative Council’s Interim Workforce Committee wants to meet with college students and young professionals from across the state to hear their ideas about enhancing the state’s workforce system. The meeting will be held at the Nafus Center, Jamestown College, Jamestown, N.D. Registration is at 9:30 a.m., with the focus group from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (includes free lunch and free parking). Please RSVP to www.luvnd.com/workforce
The committee already held four focus groups across the state and heard from 238 business and community leaders. One of the resounding comments from those who attended these meetings was, “Where are the young people?” The focus group Wednesday, April 9, is a direct result of this feedback, and the committee encourages faculty to involve your college students in this process.
In addition, the committee will meet with business and community leaders (of all ages) Thursday, April 10, in the House Chambers at the State Capitol. This day-long session is the next step toward a better, more effective workforce system for North Dakota.
Thank you in advance for your support of this process and for encouraging your college students to attend the focus group meeting April 9 in Jamestown.
