Governance Committee

The SETC is responsible for the oversight of local Workforce Investment Boards.  As part of these efforts they oversee and develop appropriate standards to ensure local WIBs are in compliance with state and federal law, the state plan and other relevant documents regarding membership and functions.  The SETC prepared a WIB Member handbook which provides policy and operational guidance on the roles and responsibilities of local WIBs in carrying out their planning, policy guidance and oversight functions of their local workforce investment systems. 

A key role of this Committee is to establish standards and priorities, and to provide oversight and guidance for local Boards with the goal of enhancing and empowering local WIBs in carry out their own planning and oversight responsibilities.  Currently, the Governance Committee is leading the WIB Certification Process, which will culminate in the SETC's recommendations for local WIBs to be recertified by the Governor in 2014.  The committee is co-chaired by Jody Levinson, SETC member, and JoAnn Trezza, SETC member and Vice President of Human Resources for Arrow Shed, LLC.
