Courtyard by Marriott Fargo-Moorhead, 1080 28th Avenue South, Moorhead.

Every day in our region, we have dedicated individuals trying to find effective solutions to quell the workforce shortage our region has been facing for years. This shortage is dampening future growth and opportunities for existing and new businesses. This issue isn’t one that is going to be solved overnight, but with partnerships created, programs supported and community leaders advocating for the success of our region, it is sure to be remedied.

Recently, the Fargo Moorhead Career Academy project has made headlines, and we want you to be among the first to hear the research that has gone into the development of this exciting project. Please join us to hear from a panel of experts who have been diligently working at creating partnerships and building support to help calm the skilled workforce shortage. John Richman, president of North Dakota State College of Science; Denise Jonas, Fargo Public Schools; Perry Lubbers, Trail King; and Tony Grindberg, North Dakota State College of Science; will share an overview.

John Richman has been serving as NDSCS president for over 10 years. He is passionate about helping students succeed and enhancing workforce initiatives that will improve North Dakota’s economy.

Perry Lubbers has been with Trail King since September 2009. He has been involved in manufacturing his entire career. Lubbers graduated from NDSU in 1979 with a B.S. in business administration with minors in economics and accounting. He is a current member of the North Dakota Workforce Development Council and a board member of the North Dakota State Chamber of Commerce.
