Applications for Memberships
The 33-member Board is business led and also includes representatives from labor, community-based organizations, education, economic development, workforce development and elected officials. WIB members, who are appointed by the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners and the City of Saint Paul, are key decision makers in their organizations with knowledge and insight into economic and workforce issues. Membership requirements are established by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the City-County Joint Powers Agreement; however, all WIB meetings are open to the public and guests are welcomed.
Because members bring valuable insight, regular participation is essential. Members are expected to attend the full WIB meetings and serve on at least one committee. The WIB’s initiative committees are made up of WIB and community members.
To discuss opportunities for serving on the Board or a committee or to learn more about the work of the WIB, please contact Rebecca Milbrandt.
