National workforce board lands in Wichita to listen, learn and repeat

A national organization focused on workforce development is in Wichita this week to learn firsthand how the city and region are addressing labor needs. Ronald Painter, CEO of the National Association of Workforce Boards, along with other members of his organization, met Wednesday with a group of local workforce stakeholders — the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas, education and government officials, business leaders, and other workforce boards from around the region. The reason for landing in Wichita is to hear about what the city is doing right and how, from a federal level, that work can be boosted and replicated elsewhere.
