Plan to Attend National Workforce Development Conference

Join us for the national conference Transforming U.S. Workforce Development Policies for the 21st Century, sponsored by the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and Kansas City and the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University. The conference will take place October 15–17.

Workforce development and labor market issues have come to the forefront as the nation continues its recovery from the Great Recession. Meet national experts to share perspectives on transformative education and workforce development strategies and policies to:

  • Improve opportunities for job seekers, students, and workers, especially those who face the greatest difficulties in the labor market
  • Meet the needs of employers and society for a highly skilled, well-educated, competitive, and productive workforce
  • Deliver effective and efficient solutions that can be adopted by federal, state, or local/regional governments as well as by educational institutions, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.

Workforce development providers, postsecondary educators, federal, state, and local policymakers, community-based organizations, researchers, lenders, the philanthropic community, and students are all encouraged to attend.

Registration information will be available in early spring. Early bird discounts will be available. For immediate questions, contact Kathy Krepcio at
