Our Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County (WDC) Board is an active, committed group made up of a majority of private sector industry leaders, as well as leaders from labor groups, youth and adult education entities, as well as state and local government agencies. Board members participate on several committees, most of which meet about five times a year for an hour and a half. In addition, the full membership of the WDC board meets three times a year, including our annual meeting and reception in June.

Our Board is a “roll-up-your-sleeves” working group dedicated to meeting the workforce development needs of our region, supporting a strong economy and the ability of each person to achieve self-sufficiency.
