New President to develop big-picture strategies to make Missouri workforce competitive
The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) announced that Michael K. Holmes, SLATE Executive Director, was elected President of Training and Employment Administrators of Missouri (TEAM) by his colleagues in a meeting Wednesday, August 17, in Jefferson City, MO.
TEAM is an association of local leaders serving as capacity builders and advocates for the workforce development system. Holmes, a member of TEAM for almost three years, was nominated and elected President of the organization. TEAM membership consists of Workforce Investment Board (WIB) Executive Directors from the 14 workforce investment areas in the State of Missouri.
"My goal as TEAM President is to better the communication between TEAM members and the Division of Workforce Development (DWD). I want to develop big-picture strategies for the workforce development system, where local WIBs and DWD work closely with each other to produce a better workforce product for our job seeking and business customers," said Holmes.
Part of TEAM's mission is to be the catalyst for affecting change, establishing policy, and providing leadership in the workforce investment system to supply employers with a competitive workforce and to provide job seekers with training and employment opportunities that lead to careers that enhance their financial security and the economic climate of the local regions and communities in the State of Missouri.
