DOL Region V Roundtables

The Illinois Worknet and American Job Center Logos presented side by side.

The annual Regional Youth Roundtable, the bi-annual DW/RR/TAA Roundtable and the Performance Accountability Roundtable are designed to bring state program leaders together to meet with DOL Region V staff to discuss a variety of subjects related to their program areas.  While meeting as three distinct roundtables, the Youth and the Dislocated Workers/Rapid Response/Trade Adjustment Assistance participants have been invited to attend a joint all-day session with the Performance Accountability participants to explore topics that cross all areas, including co-enrollment; effectiveness in serving employers and measurable skill gains; and eligible training provider reporting and the annual report narrative.

This is an excellent opportunity for state leads in all three areas to receive updates from US/DOL representatives, collaborate on ideas, best practices and issues that cross program lines.
