Executive Committee

The SAWDB Executive Committee acts on behalf of the Workforce Investment Board between the quarterly meetings of the SAWDB.  It has the authority to make adjustments to the budget, approve expenditures, and in general exercise all duties as outlined in the SAWDB’s Operating Guidelines.  Its membership is made up of six private sector representatives, one from each member county, and four non-private sector representatives.  The Chair and Vice Chair must come from the private sector; elections to the Executive Committee occur each May at the SAWDB’s annual meeting.
