July 26, 2022 – CareerSource Broward will host the Developing Your Workforce Apprenticeship Summit on August 11, 2022 from 8am to noon, at the Signature Grand in Davie, FL. The summit will be a unique opportunity for Broward business owners and community-based organizations to engage in dialogue about apprenticeships and workforce development with high-level local, state, and national apprenticeship experts and sponsors, business leaders, education partners, and industry specialists.

The Developing Your Workforce Apprenticeship Summit will provide helpful resources for Broward County employers to start and register an apprenticeship program. Registered apprenticeships help businesses reduce turnover by improving employee loyalty, increasing productivity, and improving their bottom line. The Summit offers a context in which to learn how this model has helped many organizations in Broward County.

“At CareerSource Broward we connect employers with qualified, skilled talent. In this tight labor market, this Summit will provide the resources employers need to create apprenticeship programs and how CareerSource Broward can assist in developing the skilled workforce they need to grow their business and remain competitive,” said Carol Hylton, President/CEO of CareerSource Broward.

CareerSource Broward works with the community to begin, and support the growth of, apprenticeship programs in key industries, including aviation/aerospace, construction, healthcare, hospitality/tourism, information technology, and marine industries.

Eric M. Seleznow will serve as keynote speaker of the Summit. Mr. Seleznow was formerly the Senior Advisor for Jobs for the Future (JFF) Center for Apprenticeship & Work-Based Learning and also served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for the US Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. He has over 30 years of experience managing a range of workforce development programs at the federal, state, and local levels.

There is no cost to attend this event and the registration for the Developing Your Workforce Apprenticeship Summit is now open.  For more information and to join us visit https://bit.ly/csbdapsummit.
