GOVERNMENT RELATIONS AND ADVOCACY
NCWE strongly supports our members and their efforts in advocating for workforce education policy. As such, we have created “new and improved” Government Relations webpages. These pages serve to enhance the Council's role in advocating for policy and legislation that support workforce and economic development and job training.

The Advocacy Tools section is more succinct, and we added a site visit checklist that you can print as a pdf. There is a new section on Advocating Within Your College or Organization. The Workforce Policy and Legislation section has new elements: Action Alerts; NCWE Activities and Accomplishments; and Links to Workforce Policy Organizations.
