|New Name for the WIB
As of July 1st, the Workforce Investment Board (WIB) of Ventura County will become the Workforce Development Board (WDB) of Ventura County. The change is to align with national re-branding requirements under the new federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
Under WIOA, the WIB/WDB will continue to provide high-quality workforce development programs and services to employers, job seekers, and youth. WIB/WDB members and committees are from business, education, labor, economic development, government, and community-based organizations. All are committed to regional collaboration and the development of a skilled local workforce that supports business needs and the economic vitality of Ventura County.
