Chief Elected Officials Consortium Governance Document Update

On October 19, 1018, the SVWDB Chief Elected Officials Consortium met to review revised governance documents, elect officers for the year, determine the financial disclosure statement for SVWDB board members, and set a future meeting date.

The revised Chief Elected Officials Consortium Agreement was approved by the Consortium to forward to each locality in the SVWDB service area and is attached for consideration and approval.  Knowing that localities may have questions regarding the Consortium Agreement, a staff member from SVWDB will be glad to attend a City Council or Board of Supervisors meeting to explain the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) obligations for Chief Elected Officials and answer any questions your council or board may have about the agreement.

Our corrective action plan for bringing the Consortium Agreement into compliance sets a date of May 2019 for complete execution of the agreement.  While we hope we can complete the full execution prior to May 2019, we wanted to give our local governments plenty of time to review the agreement. 

The minutes from the October 19th meeting and supporting documentation are linked below.  Our most recent Audit report is included for your information.
