The North Central Texas Workforce Development Board (Board) oversees the planning, oversight, policy guidance and design of services in 11 Texas Workforce Centers located across the 14 county workforce development area. The North Central Texas Workforce Development Board is one of 28 Workforce Development boards in the State of Texas and is one of the larger boards in Texas.

Workforce Board Members are leaders within their communities and are appointed by the chief elected official of the county in which they reside or operate their business. Because businesses are the driving force within the economy, the Board is comprised largely of private business leaders. However, the Board includes representatives from the other key partners within the workforce system: economic development entities, chambers of commerce, labor, education, and community organizations.

The Workforce Development Board meets bi-monthly. Visit the Events page for meeting dates.
