Newton County Announces Certified Work Ready Communities Summit on August 8th

Newton County county business owners, human resource managers, and education and economic development stakeholders are set to meet and discuss how to utilize and leverage the county’s upcoming recertification as an ACT Certified Work Ready Community on August 8th.  The meeting will take place from 9:00am to 11:00am at the Wright Conference Center in the Arnold Farber Building of Crowder College’s campus located at 601 Laclede Ave in Neosho.

The county first met all of the requirements for certification in 2015, and has since managed to accomplish both the additional goals as well as the supplemental criteria required for recertification.  Communities that have received the Certified Work Ready Community status from ACT can leverage the designation as an indication of the quality of their workforces.  More information about Newton County’s CWRC program and the upcoming summit can be accessed at the links below.
