Understanding the Federal Budget
As policymakers have focused greater attention on addressing the federal debt, the budget process has taken on more and more importance. In recent years, the budget debate has not only shaped federal policy priorities, but is increasingly used as the vehicle for significant policy changes to key workforce programs such as the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and the Pell Grant program. Unfortunately, the budget process is unfamiliar to most people and can be difficult to understand. This session will provide an easy to understand overview of the federal budget process, how key budget decisions, including sequestration, will likely impact workforce development programs, and how NCWE members can weigh in on key budget decisions.
Presenter: Rachel Gragg, Federal Policy Director, National Skills Coalition, DC

Innovative Business and Education Partnerships are Leading Change in Talent Development
Successful collaboration requires imagination, innovation, and trust building among willing leaders. Corporate Voices for Working Families is the leading national business membership organization shaping conversations and collaborations on public and corporate policy issues involving working families. The organization's workforce readiness portfolio reflects its conviction that employers must be active partners in preparing a robust talent pipeline of skilled workers, while helping Americans succeed in school, on the job and throughout life. This session will present a business perspective on innovative education delivery systems and partnerships that serve individuals as well as employers. Founded in Corporate Voices' Learn and Earn micro-business case series, the presentation will highlight characteristics of successful partnerships between businesses and education providers and will equip attendees with an understanding of the value proposition needed to engage employees.
Presenter: Peggy Walton, Senior Project Director for Workforce Readiness, Corporate Voices for Working Families
