2022 Winter Policy Forum

While we hoped to gather in-person for the 2022 Winter Policy Forum, we have decided to shift to a virtual event due to the surge in COVID-19 cases around the country. The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. 

The 2022 Winter Policy Forum will be virtual on Wednesday, February 16th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, February 17th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern).

The Winter Policy Forum is a gathering for NASWA state workforce members to discuss current and developing trends in the workforce system and how they will be affected by changes occurring in the national landscape. The meeting focuses on collaborating with representatives from the Administration, Congress, U.S. Dept. of Labor, Intergovernmental (IGO) partner organizations, WIOA partner groups, and other D.C. policy-making groups.

We hope you can join us!
