HR Tampa Workforce Readiness Committee

(May/June 2017)


The Time to Act is Now!!!


What an amazing conference call we had last month addressing a variety of subjects as presented by special guests Melissa Robinson (Armada Risk), Marcia Mejia (U.S. House of Representatives), Kristy Nevils (Federal Business Coach), Marie Haskins (AMIKids) and John Kontos (Arthur J. Gallagher, Co.).  The evening was packed full of content and the interaction was dynamic to say the least. 

Now with the summer months fast approaching us, our next call is scheduled for May 4th beginning at 6:00pm for one hour with a full line up of subject matter experts who will address issues facing Workforce Readiness issues throughout the Bay area.
