Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.; Nevada State Job Training Office, Carson City.; Nevada State Job Training Coordinating Council, Carson City.
These proceedings begin with a general summary of a conference to encourage collaboration among those involved to prepare a labor force with which Nevada could continue to be economically competitive. Highlights are provided of these presentations: "Opening Remarks" (Jessie Emmett); "The Dynamic West: A Region in Transition" (Daniel Sprague); "Employment and Training: Can Nevada's Human Resource Development Programs Be More Effective?" (Eric Herzik); "Workforce and Family Issues: What the Future Can Tell Us About the Present" (Paul Shay); "Education for the Future: The Crisis of Human Resource Development" (Jerry Miller); "Luncheon Address" (Roy Romer); "Educational Preparation: Preparing the Teaching Workforce" (Mary Kennedy); and "Concluding Remarks" (Dorothy Gallagher). Group session responses are presented for five questions related to the presentations. Questions concern the following: issues: (1) critical policy initiatives that will enable Nevada to effectively compete in the global economy; (2) higher level interagency planning for more cost effective use of the state's limited resources; (3) barriers to the training and education of Nevada's future work force; (4) role of occupational education in addressing labor market needs of employers and job readiness needs of students; and (5) whether the Colorado approaches are appropriate for Nevada. Lists of committees; state agencies, boards, and commissions; speaker introductions and facilitators; and recorders are appended. (YLB)
