California Green Collar Jobs Act (AB 3018) states...

“The California Workforce Investment Board shall adopt a Sector Strategy approach in responding to industry sector workforce and economic development needs. This strategy will ensure industry has a qualified workforce and can offer opportunities for employment, training, and career advancement for all Californians. The initial drive of this sector strategy approach will be the California Green Collar Jobs Act of 2008.”
The First Regional Action Clinic will be held on:

Wednesday December 9th, 2009

CSUS Alumni Center
California State University, Sacramento

6000 J Street
State University Drive South

Sacramento, CA 95819-6024

The California Regional Action Clinics will be organized to provide opportunity to educate Regions on the fundamentals of Sector Strategies, to share information as it becomes available on the green/clean job projections by region, to deliver issue specific technical assistance, allow for trouble-shooting while projects are underway, and serve as the platform for a community of learning to advance the knowledge and implementation of the State’s Energy Sector Strategy.

State Sector Strategies provide a policy framework for a statewide approach. They support and leverage regional sector initiatives at the local level.
