WIOA Board Chairman, Craig Butler, recently spoke to the local West Tennessee Society for Human Resources Management group in Jackson. The purpose of the meeting was to inform employers that resources are available for them to use, and that LWDA-11 is ready to help with their needs. An emphasis was also placed on defining exactly what WIOA does, and answering questions about some common misconceptions about WIOA.
