NCWorks Partnership Conference


October 12 - 14, 2022

The NCWorks Partnership Conference traditionally draws upwards of 1,000 Workforce Development Professionals from across the state. Attendees represent labor, state and federal government, education, community-based organizations, community colleges and the private sector. In its 35th year, the Conference continues to offer timely topics and networking opportunities.

2021 was another challenging and unique year for all of us! As we move into 2022 with optimism, hope, and a yearning for normalcy, much of our daily life is still in flux. We are committed to bringing you the annual NCWorks Partnership Conference in October - whether in person, virtual, or hybrid. However it occurs, we hope to see you at the conference!
