2019 Western Regional WIOA/477 Training

We invite you to join us at the Albuquerque Marriott for the 2019 Western Regional WIOA/477 Training! This is an opportunity to gain knowledge about the Workforce Investment Opportunities Act and the processes that have been implemented and are important in getting people back to work in Indian country.

The Planning Committee works hard to gather and strategically place training sessions to benefit all in attendance. The staff and presenters have a wealth of knowledge, are experienced, and are there to provide guidance for successful programs!

You will not want to miss this opportunity to learn, network, and enjoy this week of workshops and evening activities!
