The Atlantic County WDB is comprised of 32 representatives from within Atlantic County. The private sector represents over half of the membership, which provides for a diverse and informed Board drawn right from the community. The Board implements workforce strategies at the county level to provide funds to address the employment, training and social service needs of adults, dislocated workers and youth. The system is charged with providing a workforce development system that meets the needs of area businesses and job seekers. The Board members are asked to oversee the development and planning of new employment and training programs and to support the current services and ongoing projects of the Workforce Development Board.
