Board of Directors

Board of Directors

The First Coast Workforce Development board of directors provides critical guidance, feedback and direction as we deliver the full range of CareerSource Northeast Florida services.

The board of directors is made up of community and civic leaders in the areas of education, business and government. Board members are nominated by local chambers of commerce, county commissioners, city councils and mayors. The board is mandated legislatively to have local college presidents, school superintendents, labor leaders and representatives from state agency partners.
