Maine released its 10 Year Economic Development Plan and its Comprehensive Workforce and Talent Strategy in November 2019, which outlined Maine’s economic and workforce strategy for the next 10 years.
Much has taken place since the creation of these two plans, including a global pandemic. As a result, some of the strategies and actions identified have surpassed original predictions in some areas; in other areas, the work outlined in 2019 remains relevant today. Across all areas of work, there is an opportunity to refresh and update with actions that respond to today’s unique challenges and opportunities and contribute to the 10 Year Economic Development’s Plan 3 Overarching goals.
As workforce development, talent attraction, and innovation are foundational to both plans, the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments (AVCOG) and the Central Western Maine Workforce Development Board (CWMWDB) are partnering with the State Workforce Board (SWB) and Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) on an effort to refresh both the 10 Year Economic Development Plan and the Comprehensive Workforce and Talent Strategy.
We are inviting you to a forum of employers educational providers, businesses, workforce and community partners, labor unions, local policymakers, and other key regional stakeholders to share the progress of both plans to date and gather your feedback to help inform the tactical work for the next few years.
