Workshop Goals:

  • To develop a plan of action
  • To craft a framework for regional support networks

In addition to the review of critical workforce issues, a plan for continuing the regional dialogue will be crafted.​ The conversation will identify current efforts in the region and discuss areas for ongoing partnership in an effort to continue the workforce conversation.
