RECOMMENDATION(S):
Recommendation
That the Board of Supervisors:

2. Appoint Vivian Deniston to the HC-WDB for a two-year term effective immediately and pursuant to the HC-WDB bylaws.

Body
SOURCE OF FUNDING:
Economic Development Fund

DISCUSSION:
The HC-WDB is a commission appointed by the Board of Supervisors and required by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to oversee said funds and the workforce system in Humboldt County (the Local Workforce Development Area). The mission of the HC-WDB is to bring together resources to meet employer and employee needs and advance the prosperity of local communities. WIOA requires certain public agencies and labor unions to be appointed members of the HC-WDB. HC-WDB membership must be balanced with an equal number, plus one, of private sector members, as WIOA regulations require that at least 51 percent of the HC-WDB membership be composed of the private sector.

The HC-WDB received and reviewed an application to fill a current vacancy and recommended appointment of the applicant at their November 2, 2018 meeting. The proposed appointment is in accordance with the HC-WDB bylaws. Vivian Deniston represents Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 2015, and will fill a vacant labor union seat.

FINANCIAL IMPACT:
The requested action has no financial impact.

Appointments to the HC-WDB support your Board's Strategic Framework Core Roles of supporting business and workforce development.

OTHER AGENCY INVOLVEMENT:
No other agency involvement.

ALTERNATIVES TO STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS:
Your Board may choose not to appoint this individual and instead direct the HC-WDB to conduct an additional search for applicants.
