South Bay Workforce Investment Board Committees

(Under WIOA Referred to as “Standing Committees)

The South Bay Workforce Investment Board (SBWIB) is soliciting proposals from qualified individuals interested in serving as volunteers (non-SBWIB Board Members) on the standing committees. 


The SBWIB has established Standing committees to provide information and assist the Local WDB in carrying out its responsibilities under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Standing committee members must include individuals who are not members of the Local WDB and who have demonstrated experience and expertise in accordance with § 679.340(b) and as determined by the Local WDB.


The standing committees expand opportunities for stakeholders to participate in Local WDB decision-making, particularly for representatives of organizations that do not sit on the Local WDB but have a stake in the success of Local WDB decisions. Such committees also expand the capacity of the Local WDB in meeting required functions. For this reason, it is important to appointment non-Board Members to the standing committees.
