Meetings and Governance

Regular Meetings 

The Work Development Board (WDB) meetings take place four times a year and are scheduled on Friday mornings from 8:30 to 10:30 am. Meetings are typically held at the Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) in the Annex Room. Occasionally they are held at an alternate location.

Meeting locations may change due to location scheduling conflicts. Meeting dates are also subject to change, and a meeting may be canceled if a quorum will not be satisfied. We will make every effort to post these changes online. Please check the agenda or call us at 707-445-7745 if you have questions about a meeting.

Governance and Membership 

Members of the HC-WDB are appointed by the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors according to Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) requirements and WDB bylaws. These board positions are unpaid. The WIOA requires certain agencies using workforce funds to be represented on the WDB, such as the Employment Development Department and the Northern California Indian Development Council.

California state law requires that 20% of membership be labor unions, and overall, WIOA requires that the membership be 51% private sector or business and that the chair of the WDB be a business representative. The WDB bylaws define the private sector to include both for-profit and non-profit entities. The WDB encourages membership of business representatives from the Targets of Opportunity industries in our region.
