Regional Alliance for Workforce Development

The Regional Alliance for Workforce Development directs and implements a comprehensive regional strategy for the emerging workforce in the Mid-South. The Alliance is centered and directed from the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce with the Business-Education Collaboratives Department as a lead institution. The Alliance serves as a broker for the stakeholders of the emerging, transitional and current workforce, and works with directors of each sector of the workforce continuum to ensure the alignment of processes, strategies and outcomes.

The Alliance strives to promote achievement of the Memphis 2005 workforce development mission, to provide a clearinghouse for research and best practices in education and workforce investment, and to support the Memphis regional Workforce Investment Board as it develops policy to achieve its mission, goals and objectives.
