This training is designed for new Coordinators and new Local Joint Committee Members. It provides an introduction to the program as a whole, an experience of successful sites through learning center tours, and a chance to network with staff and other Coordinators and LJC members old and new. The agenda will include topics such as classes, funding, evaluation, policy and communications.
The training portion of these two days will take place at the USW/US Steel - Gary Works Learning Center located at 1221 East Ridge Road, Gary, IN. We plan to tour four other learning centers as part of the training as well.
We have negotiated a block of sleeping rooms at the new Home2 Suites by Hilton which is close to the Gary Works Learning Center and just a couple blocks from the ICD office in Merrillville. Home2 Suites is located at 8420 Indiana Street, Merrillville, IN and the rate is $95/night.
