Board of Directors

Chairs Message

I am proud to serve as Chair of the Southern Workforce Board, an organization recognized at the national level for its innovative and successful solutions for effective economic and workforce development.

This is a volunteer Board representing employers, service agencies, community action organizations, educational entities, and economic development partners.  Our mission is simple:  to identify needs of business/industry through training, education and skills matching.  Our members are from such diverse backgrounds that we relate well to the varied challenges faced by our regions’ businesses and our workforce partners.  It is this diversity that has brought about the Board’s success in creating award-winning solutions for our seventeen-county-community.

To each Board member, thank you for giving your time, expertise, experience and skills for the advancement of our regional ecosystems and growth of our workforce.

Looking forward to many shared successes,
Donnalla Miller
