Career & Educational Advisory Council (CEAC)

The Career & Educational Advisory Council (CEAC) is appointed by the SEMCA Workforce Development Board (WDB) to provide input and recommendations to the WDB and SEMCA staff. It’s membership consists of educational, employer, labor, and parent representatives from the SEMCA region. The CEAC brings education and business together by establishing a formal entity and mechanism to build and maintain a collaborative partnership with local school districts, employers, post-secondary institutions, advocates, and training centers to identify significant talent needs in a community and collectively develop and implement training strategies to effectively meet employers’ talent needs.

Virtual Career & Educational Advisory Council Meeting – April 12, 2021

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, protect the public health, and provide essential protections to vulnerable Michiganders, it is crucial that all Michiganders take steps to limit in-person contact. These critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings. 

To that end, it is reasonable and necessary to temporarily suspend rules and procedures relating to physical presence at meetings and hearings of public bodies and other governmental entities in Michigan. These public bodies and entities must continue to conduct public business during this emergency, including actions to respond to COVID-19, and the general public must be able to continue to participate in government decision-making without unduly compromising public health, safety, and welfare.

SEMCA has determined it is in the best interest of the health and safety of the general public and the members of its Career & Educational Advisory Council (CEAC) and SEMCA staff to conduct the meetings of its CEAC through virtual means.
