NIMS at White House Summit on American Apprenticeships

I would like to change it to say: NIMS staff attended the White House Summit on American Apprenticeships to provide their informed standpoints on today’s apprenticeship system and its future.

On July 14, Greg Chambers, chairman of the NIMS board of directors and compliance director for Oberg Industries (Freeport, Pennsylvania), and NIMS Executive Director James Wall attended the White House Summit on American Apprenticeships to provide their informed standpoints on today's apprenticeship system and its future.

Summit topics included a forum on innovation in apprenticeship, followed by discussions on expansion into up-and-coming occupations and industries, promotion of innovation in apprenticeship, and designing for diversity. The summit discussed the conceptualization of building a supportive local base for apprenticeships to cultivate action at the state and regional levels and the capacity-building necessary to establish an "ecosystem for apprenticeship."

An announcement containing specifications of an upcoming $100 million federal investment in American apprenticeship is expected in mid-October this year.
