Reynolds named to worker training advisory board
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Kim Reynolds has been appointed to a national advisory board on worker training led by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Ivanka Trump.
The American Workforce Policy Advisory Board is a 25-member panel designed to develop strategies for worker training and education “that will equip them to compete and win in the global economy.”
Members of the board were announced Wednesday.
Other board members include Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, Apple CEO Tim Cook and chief executives from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Home Depot and IBM.
Board members are appointed to serve until July 2020.
The board was created by an executive order President Donald Trump signed last July that created the National Council for the American Worker . The advisory board is to provide information and recommendations to the council.
