Virtual Workforce Development Board Meeting – July 15, 2020

Under the Executive Order 2020-75, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer declared:

“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.
