What is the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA)?

Since 1996, the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA) has been a leader in workforce development programs. SEMCA partners with various contractors to service residents in Wayne and Monroe counties, excluding the city of Detroit.

SEMCA is committed to its vision for a competitive economy that is sustained by private and public partnerships that develop a productive workforce.

As a result of our dedication to the residents of southeast Michigan, SEMCA is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, the first nonprofit organization in the country to receive such an accreditation from the Council under its newest network standards.

SEMCA is governed by three volunteer boards that fulfill specific functions of the organization the Workforce Development Board, the Education Advisory Group, and the Southeast Governmental Alliance (SEGA).

SEGA is the governing board of SEMCA. It is comprised of elected officials from the SEMCA region. The Honorable Mayor Abdul (Al) Haidous, City of Wayne, is the board chair. read more
