The National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) has elected Jon Pierpont, executive director of the Utah Department of Workforce Services, to serve on its leadership team as president-elect. As part of this commitment, Pierpont will represent Utah on the committee for the next three years as president-elect, president and past-president.
“Workforce issues are one of the hottest topics nationwide. We are at a point where innovation is key in developing workforce programs at the state level,” said Pierpont. “Collaborating with other states and then representing the challenges and successes at a national level will be critical these new few years. It’s an honor to be working with NASWA and my fellow state administrators.”
