|SUBJECT:||Membership Changes to Local Area Workforce Investment Boards (WIBS)|
|Purpose:||To provide the Local Areas with a mechanism for communicating WIB changes to the Department of Labor|
|Background:||Local Workforce Investment Boards, in partnership with their Chief Elected Officials, set policy for the local workforce investment systems. These Boards are vital, vibrant entities subject to growth and change as Local Areas refine their workforce development systems. It is recognized that changes in WIB membership will occur and in some circumstances these changes may result in changes to Board composition.
Since the Department of Labor is required, by statute, to certify that the composition of each WIB is consistent with the requirements of the Workforce Investment Act and related State criteria, it is critical that each Local Area provide prompt updates whenever changes in WIB membership occur.
Therefore, notices of changes in WIB membership must be submitted to the Department within 30 days of occurrence. This reporting requirement should in no way delay, or impede, the new member in the full performance of his/her duties, including casting votes during WIB meetings.
|Action:||A notification of change in WIB membership must be submitted to the Department of Labor within 30 days of the change. To facilitate this process, changes should be submitted electronically using the change form found on the Local Workforce Investment Boards page.
The process for reporting changes, including corrected information for members continuing in service, is as follows:
