The charge of the Catawba Regional Workforce Investment Board is to create a quality workforce development system infrastructure that is accessible and customer-focused. It is also the source for workforce intelligence within the region. The WIA Board is also charged with reducing community workforce development issues by identifying current/future job and skill requirements and instituting plans and resources to address skill gaps within the workforce. The Workforce Investment Act mandates that services must be administered through a One-Stop service system. The One-Stop Centers within the Catawba WIA provide a variety of services for both employers and job seekers.
