Local and Regional Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Plans

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires Workforce Development Boards to develop and submit a comprehensive four-year local plan and regional plan to the state for approval. Plans must address current and future strategies and efficiencies to advance the continuing modernization of the workforce system and the creation of a customer-centered system. It must also support the strategy described in the State Plan and be consistent with the State Plan.

Virtual Workforce Development Board Meeting – May 19, 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 Workforce Development Board (WDB) and SEMCA staff to conduct the meetings of its WDB through virtual means.
