About SC Works Catawba

Each of the three counties is responsible for the appointment of members to the Catawba Regional Workforce Development Act Board. The WBA is a volunteer group of citizens from local business, labor, education, and economic development and community organizations and has policy oversight for all activities under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
