Background Information:

WorkNet Pinellas, Inc. dba CareerSource Pinellas (CSPin) is governed by a Board of Directors.  All positions are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC).  CSPin is approved for up to 45 members, and complies with the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA).  This application has been reviewed by Pinellas County Department of Economic Development.

Revised CSPin Bylaws are on today’s BCC agenda for final approval.  If approved, the CSPin Board will be required to add an elected Pinellas County School Board member.  This, in turn, would require another member be appointed in the “Business Category,” in order to maintain a majority of private sector representatives as required by federal law.  This director will serve a new two-year term, expiring on June 30, 2021.

The local board must include representatives from four categories:
1)
                     Business: owners or executives of firms providing employment opportunities in in-demand industry sectors or occupations in Pinellas County.
2)
                     Workforce: representatives of labor organizations, apprenticeship programs, or community-based organizations who assist individuals with barriers to employment or out-of-school youth.
3)
                     Education and Training: providers of adult education and literacy under Title II, community colleges, and local educational agencies and community-based organizations providing education or training to individuals with barriers to employment.
4)
                     Government, Economic and Community Development: including representatives of entities serving the local area relating to transportation, housing, and public assistance; or philanthropic organizations serving the local area.
5)       Other:  Federal statutes allow the appointment of “other appropriate individuals as determined by the chief elected official”.

The local workforce development board has the following responsibilities:
a)
                     Develop, submit, ratify, or amend the local workforce development plan,
b)
                     Provide ongoing oversight related to administrative costs, duplicated services, career counseling, economic development, equal access, compliance and accountability, and performance outcomes,
c)
                     Oversee the one-stop delivery system in its local area, and
d)
                     Designate all local service providers.
