Business & Education Committee
The purpose of the Business and Education Committee is to partner business members with educators to address workforce and education issues for long-term prosperity.
Scope of Work
The committee will have various ad hoc or sub-committees that will focus on the following types of activities:
- Actively engage businesses in workforce development preparation for our youth, including job shadows, site tours, speaking opportunities, internships, etc.
- Organize and conduct an annual Reverse Job Fair in cooperation with Post Falls School District secondary schools.
- Initiate and cooperate with neighboring communities, agencies and organizations to address workforce issues on a regional level through involvement with the Kootenai County Workforce Development Task Force.
- Explore opportunities to further engage business members with students and educators to provide the motivation for students to continue their education in ways (secondary and post-secondary) that prepare them for future business needs.
The Chair or leader of the ad hoc and/or sub-committees will ensure communication with other chamber committee chairs to promote and coordinate activities within the membership.
Board Chair - Christina Cox, University of Idaho
