The local Workforce Board for the Land of Lincoln serves the counties of Cass, Christian, Logan, Menard, and Sangamon. The five-county workforce area is governed by a volunteer board responsible for overseeing workforce development initiatives in partnership with local elected officials. WIB membership includes representatives from business and industry, education, community-based organizations, economic development agencies, public vocational rehabilitation and labor organizations. Membership on the Board requires that individuals have optimum policy-making authority in their organization.
The role of the WIB is to ensure that the local workforce system is market-driven and responsive in meeting the employment and training needs of employers and job seekers.
