Ottawa County working on ACT Work Ready Community Certification

We had an excellent OKCRC update training with OESC Workforce managers and staff on Tuesday at Kiamichi Technology Center in McAlester. A question came up about Work Ready Communities and a representative from Ottawa County, who is currently working in ACT's Work Ready Communities initiative was present and provided the group with details from the recent academy in New Orleans. You can learn how your county, WIB area, technology center district or tribal nation can join ACT's Certified Work Ready Communities at
and as always feel free to contact me with questions.

New ACT Work Ready Communities Badge--Will your county be first in Oklahoma?

Which county in Oklahoma will be the first to earn the ACT Work Ready Communities badge?

ACT Work Ready Communities is proud to debut a new badge that promotes and celebrates each county that achieves and maintains certification as a part of ACT Work Ready Communities.   

The ACT Work Ready Communities website will display the badge for each county that achieves certification. The badge features the county name and year the certification was earned, along with the years the certification is maintained.  Through a licensing agreement with ACT, each certified county will also have the opportunity to use the badge on its own literature and website to promote participation in the Work Ready Communities initiative. The badge licensing agreement is expected to be available in late March 2015.
