Advisory Board

The Workforce & Economic Development Advisory Board (WEDAB) is comprised of a group of individuals representing industry and government partners from across the Wasatch Front. The group meets regularly to receive updates on WED division efforts and to provide thought leadership on matters of mutual importance to the College and its stakeholders. WEDAB members are ambassadors of the Division who advocate on its behalf and advance its mission by opening doors to further opportunities in the Salt Lake Valley.
