About the Town Hall

The Region 5 WIOA Town Hall is one in a series of national listening sessions as we work to implement WIOA. At this town hall, we will have a conversation with stakeholders and provide an opportunity to discuss the changes outlined in the WIOA legislation, to inform the Department of Labor (DOL) as we develop regulations and transition to implement this new legislation.
