The DuPage Workforce Board is a business-led policy and decision-making body. Workforce Boards were originally created under a 1998 federal law called the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), and were reauthorized in 2014 under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), with a mandate to create a workforce development system that meets the needs of employers for qualified workers and by expanding employment opportunities for residents. The DuPage Workforce Board has become a key player in the economic growth and competitiveness of our local area and the region. In this larger role, the Workforce Board functions as a convener, an innovator, and a facilitator of strategic partnerships between the private sector, non-profit agencies, educational institutions, local elected officials, local government agencies, labor, and job training and education programs.

County Chairman




Membership is drawn from individuals with optimum policy-making authority from their organization and who hold executive positions. The Workforce Board looks for board members with specialized knowledge and insight into one or more of our key areas of focus, and with skills and experience in long-range planning, group problem solving, capital investment strategies, and organization / business development backgrounds.


A majority of the board must be business leaders. The remainder of the board must be comprised of key decision makers from education, economic development, community based organizations, labor unions, training and human service agencies.
