Chairman, Guam Workforce Investment Board
Executive Order No. 99-13 created the Guam Workforce Investment Board under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Federal Public Law 105-220
Our vision is to provide leadership, strategic guidance, and resources that are valuable to the Workforce Investment System. We commit to improve the quality of life and standard of living of our citizens by maximizing their potential for employment in a competitive economy.
The Act requires the establishment of a business-led Workforce Investment Board (WIB) consisting of the Governor and appointees of the Governor representing business (small to large), education, labor, local elected officials and partners of the One Stop Career Center.
The WIB is responsible for the development and implementation of a comprehensive five-year strategic plan outlining workforce development activities and developing performance measures and allocation formulas for adult, youth and dislocated worker programs.
The WIB is also responsible for establishing workforce investment policies and the designation of the One Stop Career Center operators. They identify training providers, determine performance measures and monitor system performance against those established performance measures.
One Stop Career Center provides consumers with access to core, intensive and training services; focuses on building strong collaborative linkages between the public and private sector to meet skill needs of employers and the training and employment of job seekers at large.
