Other members represent local government, community-based organizations, employment related agencies, apprenticeship, and educational organizations. The Board is committed to making the Kerr-Tar region a great place to have a business, to find educated and skilled employees and a great place for job seekers to find the programs and training that will make them well qualified employees.
