Local Elected Official (LEO) Board

The Local Elected Official (LEO) Board consists of one County Commissioner from each of our nine counties. The LEO Board serves, along with the Workforce Development Board (WDB), as the oversight body and ensures fiscal accountability of the CPWDC. The LEO Board have a crucial role in identifying and appointing the most qualified individuals to serve as members of the WDB.

In order to facilitate collaboration, the LEO Board meets quarterly in conjunction with the WDB.
