Workforce development is the Upstate business community’s biggest concern – and the Chamber’s top legislative priority in 2017. This year’s Upstate Chamber Coalition Workforce Forum will explore the issues facing businesses in hiring, highlight the work being done by local agencies, and push the policy fixes we believe need to be made. We will focus on how to expand our workforce by expanding employment for ex-offenders and the disabled and include simulations to provide real-world examples of their barriers to employment.

Attendees will leave armed with information on how to improve their workforce pipeline and with the information they need to engage elected officials on workforce development and education issues.

Re-Entry Job Fair

Immediately following the Forum a Re-entry Job Fair will be held from 11:30am until 2:00pm in the TD Center's Conference Hall. If your business would like to participate in the Job Fair, please fill out this form and return to Katie Busbee. As an employer participant in the Job Fair, you will receive one registration to the Workforce Forum.
