The Central Workforce Development Board (CWDB) is the body charged by the federal government, with the considerable task of providing oversight of employment and training services and workforce development activities in Central Missouri. It is the group that sets policy and selects and supervises providers of employment and training programs. The board came into existence in early 2000, replacing the local private industry council.

The CWDB is composed of volunteer representatives from the nineteen Central Missouri counties. The CWDB administrative office is located in Rolla and is staffed by an experienced administrative group led by Executive Director Alexandra Blackwell.

The CWDB is the regional source of workforce development information and initiatives and provides information about providers of employment and training services in each area of the Central Region, about workforce development opportunities, and about many other workforce related topics.

CWDB is an equal opportunity employer with equal opportunity programs. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. TDD-TDY users only 711 or 800-735-2966.
