Cabarrus County Workforce Solutions Summit was a Huge Success!

David Cabarrus Summit 17 Employers have been struggling finding qualified candidates for job openings, as labor market tightens and employers have been needing people with specific skills.  As a result, the Cabarrus Economic Development, Cabarrus Regional Chamber of Commerce, and a host of other agencies hosted a Workforce Solutions Summit on Thursday, July 13th at the Kannapolis City Hall.  

The Workforce Solutions Summit shared information about several initiatives and resources regarding the "war on talent".  This created an opportunity for employers and partners to see the value in strengthening the employer base and the Cabarrus community.  

David Hollars, Executive Director
of the Centralina Workforce Development Board talked about the Centralina NCWorks Career Center initiative and the services provided at the NCWorks Career Center-Cabarrus.  Centralina WDB Board member Tracie Brunt-Hampton and Centralina Workforce Development Consortium Tracie brunt hampton cabarrus summit 17
