National Workforce Association
The National Workforce Association is a membership organization dedicated to strengthening the nation's workforce development system. Formerly called the National Association of County Training and Employment Professionals, NWA is one of the largest of over 23 affiliates with NACo (National Association of Counties). NWA's goal is to:
• provide expertise and input to federal, state and local elected officials to enable them to make sound policy decisions about the workforce system and • promote innovation and excellent performance in locally based workforce programs through conferences, training sessions, publications and peer-to-peer exchanges.
NWA members are directors and staff of workforce investment areas, One-Stop Centers, service providers, educational institutions, state associations representing workforce professionals and corporations. Anyone is welcome to join. All that's needed is an interest in workforce issues. NWA brings workforce development partners together!
