Business Education Workforce Development Committee
The purpose of the Business and Education Workforce Development Committee (BEWD) is to partner business members with educators to address workforce and education issues for long-term prosperity.
Scope of Work
The committee will have various ad hoc or sub-committees that will focus on the following types of activities:
- Actively engage businesses in workforce development preparation for our youth, including job shadows, site tours, speaking opportunities, internships, etc.
- Organize and conduct an annual Reverse Job Fair in cooperation with Post Falls School District secondary schools.
- Initiate and cooperate with neighboring communities, agencies and organizations to address workforce issues on a regional level through involvement with the Kootenai County Workforce Development Task Force.
- Explore opportunities to further engage business members with students and educators to provide the motivation for students to continue their education in ways (secondary and post-secondary) that prepare them for future business needs.
The Chair or leader of the ad hoc and/or sub-committees will ensure communication with other chamber committee chairs to promote and coordinate activities within the membership.
