AJLA Steering Committee

Subscription to AJLA–TS products includes AJLA membership at no additional charge. Members are encouraged to nominate representatives to AJLA’s user group, the AJLA Steering Committee, which helps direct the ongoing development of AJLA–TS systems. The Steering Committee provides members with an instant, nationwide network of peers for sharing workforce development strategies and best practices.

The Steering Committee is led by an elected AJLA Executive Committee. Elections are held every other year at the AJLA Annual Conference. The Executive Committee collaborates with AJLA–TS leadership to develop high-level organizational priorities and strategies, including those documented in the Annual AJLA Work Plan.

AJLA Events

AJLA hosts three Steering Committee meetings a year. These meetings are open to non-members and are wonderful, affordable opportunities for professional development and networking. The agenda always includes AJLA–TS administrative and product development updates, updates on current issues from AJLA’s NASWA, USDOL/ETA, and USDOL/VETS liaisons, and a variety of educational presentations by member states, as well as local, state, and federal workforce development professionals. Time is also devoted to reviewing and discussing product enhancements submitted by users in AJLA’s online tracking system, Redmine.
