FVWDB Structure and Committees

The Fox Valley Workforce Development Board, Inc. has five functional committees that work together to foster an environment of accessible, high quality, efficient and affordable training and employment opportunities to individuals, employees, and employers. These committees either oversee FVWDB or report to FVWDB and serve as specialized resource and referral areas performing unique functions based on area needs. Through these committees, FVWDB administers WIOA programs, operates six One-Stop Job and Career Centers, and provides business services to employers.

Chief Elected Officials (CEO)  (formally Local Elected Officials (LEO))

Each of the six counties , Winnebago, Fond du Lac, Waupaca, Calumet, Waushara and Green Lake, chose a Local Elected Official (LEO) to represent them in a consortium with the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board. The consortium appoints board members to the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board. LEOs oversee the Board of Directors of FVWDB and can attend the Board meetings, but have no voting rights.

Executive Committee (EC)

The Executive Committee (EC) acts for the full board between meetings and is responsible to keep the big FVWDB picture. EC oversees FVWDB staff and conducts an annual performance review of the Executive Administrator. It conducts grievance hearings for staff and contractor matters. The committee has primary responsibilities for the development and review of the five year strategic plan. EC takes the lead in negotiating local performance standards with the state, and the committee directs program funds to appropriate sub-committee oversight.

Finance Committee

The role of the Finance Committee is to review financial information and expenditure reports, review and make recommendations to financial procedures, and make recommendations to the full board on Program Year (PY) budgets.

One-Stop Systems Committee

The One Stop Systems Committee has many areas of responsibilities. It explores additional funding sources to address the strategic initiatives and action plans adopted by the full Board and addresses One-Stop partners and staff to obtain them.
