Alabama Workforce Investment Board

The Alabama Workforce Investment Board (AWIB) provides advice and policy guidance to the governor on building a strong workforce development system that aligns with economic development and skills training goals in the state. The board is responsible for the overall Workforce Investment Act (WIA) program which includes the Alabama Career Center System, Adult Education and Rehabilitation Services. The board members are appointed by the Governor and represent a cross-section of industry and business leaders, labor officials, education leaders, economic development specialist and local elected officials.

The AWIB is responsible for developing policies and strategies to form a coordinated workforce development system for a variety of education, employment and training programs. The board assists the governor and key workforce partners and stakeholders on two key outcomes- a properly prepared workforce to meet the current and future demands of Alabama employers and providing opportunities for Alabama’s workforce to succeed in the 21st century.
