Purpose. (1) To announce the National One-Stop Career Center System Conference to be held July 28-30, 1998, at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and (2) to solicit suggestions for conference topics.
Background. This year's conference, "One-Stop: The Future is Now--Building Results," sponsored by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the State of Minnesota, will provide an opportunity for workforce development professionals to hear how States and localities are implementing and/or sustaining the One-Stop Career Center System, using technology and partnerships to establish career centers that achieve positive results for the workforce development customers. Technology critical for system building will be one of the many conference features as well as updates on: services for businesses and job seekers, including welfare recipients; labor market information; and training services. A home page for the conference (www.one-stop98.org) has been created and will have the latest conference information available. ETA's home page (www.doleta.gov) will have a link to that home page.
Solicitation of Conference Topics. It is the goal of the one-stop conference planning committee to make the conference agenda as responsive as possible to the needs of all the partners of the workforce development system in the implementation of the One-Stop Career Center System.
To achieve this goal, workforce development professionals are encouraged to suggest possible conference topics, speakers and exhibits. The attached "Call for Topics" is provided to gather these suggestions. All suggestions will provide valuable input in the development of the conference agenda.
Action. States are asked to distribute this TEIN and attached "Call for Topics" to all appropriate officials in the State interested in workforce development issues, including service delivery areas and substate areas, State and local human services agencies, particularly welfare agencies, community-based organizations, businesses, and labor partners.
Suggested topics, workshops, and exhibit resources should be forwarded to Shelley Landgraf (612-282-6923) (fax: 612-282-6927) or e-mail: [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Anyone wishing to complete the attached "Call for Topics" should ensure it reaches Ms. Landgraf no later than February 17.
