About the Workforce Development Board
Create opportunities for success by connecting businesses to a quality workforce
To effectively connect a world-class workforce that meets the needs and exceeds the expectations of our partners in the Adams County Business Community
The Workforce Development Board (WDB) is composed of community leaders dedicated to workforce development. The members of the Adams County WDB are representatives of private industry, nonprofits, and public agencies. The Workforce Development Board is mandated by federal legislation to oversee public investments in employment and training programs. This responsibility is accomplished through the activities of the Adams County Workforce and Business Center.
On November 11, 2023, Commissioner Lynn Baca joined the Adams County Workforce Development Board (ACWDB) to be recognized as a High Performing Board for the fifth straight year by the Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC). Local Workforce Development Boards in Colorado are recognized as high performing by the CWDC when they achieve a series of key performance indicators and the ACWDB achieved the highest score available. The ACWDB is comprised of diverse and knowledgeable community members who actively participate in board meetings and activities supporting the local workforce system. They serve as liaisons between the community and the local workforce center, and actively work to accomplishes goals and strategic priorities through data driven, business-led meetings. This recognition is well deserved!
