The 2019 Local Government Forum at NCTC, West Virginia
The 2019 Local Government Forum led by Kate Fritz, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay
The Local Government Advisory Committee (LGAC), in conjunction with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), held its 2019 Local Government Forum on September 11th, 2019 at the National Conservation and Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV. The Local Government Forum is an annual problem-solving and strategic planning event that has been held since 2015. This year, the Forum focused on workforce development in the stormwater and green infrastructure sectors.
LGAC invited experts from around the Chesapeake Bay’s watershed to discuss and make recommendations around the topic of enhancing workforce development. To aid in this development, six examples of workforce development programs from around the watershed were shared. They included:
