Credential Opportunity
Ms. Rice reviewed the PPWFC Young Adult Services Team becoming a National Retail Federation “NRF” testing location.
The National Retail Federation Foundation (NRFF), and over 30 leading retailers, have come together to launch RISE Up – a powerful program offering training and credentials that help entry-level job seekers develop meaningful careers. This credential opportunity was presented at the National Association of Workforce Boards. The essence of the program is that workforce boards become an NRFF testing location. There is a nominal one time set-up fee and then an exam fee for each customer going through the course and testing. Both items are eligible to be covered by our young adult program training funds.
A motion was made to approve for full Board approval by Renee Zentz, seconded by Julie Krow.  Motion passed unanimously.
Board Member Nomination
Review and approve nominations for PPWFC Board membership.
Ms. Rice reviewed the WIOA requirements for Board seats as well as credential review of nominees Sharie Flanagan and Brian Bradley.
A motion was made to approve the WDB nominees presented for full board approval by Jeff Greene, seconded by Stephannie Finley-Fortune.  Motion passed unanimously.
