Workforce Development Professionals Month
Every year, NAWDP recognizes September as Workforce Development Professionals Month to raise awareness about the importance of our industry to a growing national economy. Highly skilled workforce development professionals provide critical links in their communities between businesses looking to hire, the pool of job seekers and education, training and support resources.
With a few simple activities, you can help remind political leadership, businesses, educational agencies, economic development organizations, labor unions and customers about the value your programs and services bring to the local economy.
