Central Chamber’s Workforce Readiness Luncheon Oct. 18

On Thursday, Oct. 18, the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce will hold its Workforce Readiness Economic Luncheon, sponsored by Career Source and TD Bank.

The luncheon, featuring keynote speaker Mark Wilson, president and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, will discuss the measures that Florida and Palm Beach County are taking to fill the workforce needs and skills gap. In the last decade, Wilson has raised tens of millions of dollars to champion free enterprise and improve Florida’s business climate.

Workforce readiness measures the number of people entering the workforce who have the skills and knowledge to attain gainful employment. The luncheon will address the skills needed for the workforce and the lack of skills in certain areas. Closing the gap between business needs and job seekers’ employment needs will strengthen the area’s economy.

The luncheon will take place at the West Palm Beach Marriott from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Individual tickets are $50, and tables are $650.
