The Manpower Development Council, State of Iowa. Final Report.
Iowa State Manpower Development Council, Des Moines.; Iowa State Univ. of Science and Technology, Ames. Industrial Relations Center.
The Iowa State Manpower Development Council was established as an experiment in local coordination of federal, state and community manpower programs. Shifts in the occupational and industrial attachment of workers and heavy out-migrations of workers from rural to urban areas underscored the importance of human resource development. The major goal of the Council was to develop an active, cohesive and comprehensive system of human resource development through the five functions of coordination, technical assistance, liaison, information, and innovation. Some major activities promoted by the Council were: (1) surveys of manpower needs and resources, (2) youth programs, (3) mobility projects, (4) institutional training programs, (5) on-the-job training programs, (6) older worker programs, (7) community action programs, (8) physical, mental and social handicapped prevocational counseling centers, and (9) job vacancy survey. The organization of the Council includes the three major divisions to handle Experimental and Demonstration Programs, Program Development and Technical Assistance, and Human Resources Planning. The narrativ e contains a discussion of the experimental and demonstration programs conducted, programs developed, utilization of the Council, and a review and evaluation. (DM)
