“To ensure the Middle Tennessee workforce is aligned with the region’s long-range economic needs, Workforce Investment funds will provide training and credentials which develop talent for high demand and high skill careers.”

The Workforce Investment Board (MTWIB) was established by federal law to provide leadership, direction, vision and oversight of a Local Workforce System. Utilizing public resources, its purpose is to assist in addressing the employment needs of employers and the career development needs of workers. The MTWIB promotes workforce and economic development and youth education throughout our four-county region, Local Workforce Investment Area-9.

The Board is comprised of 40 - 43 volunteer members with a majority representing private sector employers.

The remaining members represent:
  • Organized Labor
  • Economic and Community Development
  • Education
  • Community Based Organizations
  • Agencies operating within the One-Stop System

The Board is led by Executive, Workforce and Operations Committees as well as a Youth Council that develop strategies for workforce development in our area.
