Please note when registering:
This Member Meeting will include facilitated small group discussions. Please choose the discussion group you would like to participate in, from the list below, and include it in the ‘note’ section of the Fall Member Meeting registration page. Group preferences will come on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Allied Health Care Career Network:  Come talk with representatives from the Allied Health Care Career Network, which is a network of four community-based organizations that provide low-skilled adults with the training and support needed for employment and advancement in healthcare careers. We will engage in a dialogue about the development of a multi-organization collaboration; utilizing the strengths of each partner to effectively serve and transition participants; and developing partnerships outside of the Network. 
  • CJC’s Monthly Workforce Development Working Group: For a number of years, CJC has hosted a monthly working group meeting for providers to discuss current policies, programs, and reforms taking place in the workforce development field. To ensure that we remain responsive, we want to hear from you! Please join us to provide your input on what’s working well, what ideas you have, and what topics you’d like to see these meetings address in the future.
  • Fathers, Families and Healthy Communities Demonstration Project: The Fathers, Families and Healthy Communities Demonstration Project  (FFHC) works in partnership with workforce, legal, health, and social services providers to support African-American, non-custodial fathers to connect to their children financially, socially, and emotionally so that their children will realize better outcomes and possibilities. In addition, FFHC seeks to connect these fathers to their families, communities, and employment opportunities. Join Project staff to learn about FFHC’s unique model of working across sectors and different types of organizations that serve these fathers.
  • Jobs Councils Across Illinois: Come learn about the work of local jobs councils in Illinois and engage in a dialogue about their workforce development priorities, current challenges and opportunities, leadership development, and sustainability.  Leaders from jobs councils in DuPage County, Aurora, Rockford, Decatur, and Springfield have been invited.  This is an opportunity for members of local jobs councils to learn from one another.
  • Opportunities for Collaboration in the South Suburbs: Many development and re-development projects in Chicago’s south suburbs promise to create economic opportunities and jobs for local residents.  Join CJC staff and others from the south suburbs to hear how workforce development stakeholders are collaborating to connect job seekers and community-based providers to those opportunities.
  • Pathways to Careers Network Policy Agenda: Since 2011 CJC has partnered with Women Employed to bring together organizations across the state to move adult learners with low skills to good jobs.  In this conversation, we’ll get input from workforce development and adult education practitioners to inform policy change that Illinois needs to make in order to expand “bridge” programs and other strategies to help adults transition into post-secondary programs and careers.
