Governor Mark Dayton announced that William (Bill) Nelson, of Onamia, and CEO of Mille Lacs Health System, was appointed to the Governor’s Workforce Development Council Board. He will be acting as a Representative of Business, and will hold the term until December 31, 2018.
The Governor's Workforce Development Board works to strengthen the skills of Minnesota's workforce.
Made up of leaders from business, education, labor, community organizations, and state and local governments, the GWDB forges constructive solutions to Minnesota’s workforce challenges and provides leadership on plans that are of strategic importance to the state.
The Board ensures employers play an active role in improving education and training programs, and provides a venue for those in the workforce who have a vested interest to build a shared vision, as well as form strategic alliances.
“I look forward to being on this board and working to uphold their mission and vision,” said Nelson.
