Regional Workforce Information Summit

LFCC (Becoming Laurel Ridge) is undergoing a transformation to become a more comprehensive resource to our current and prospective students. In an effort to expand the regional workforce program knowledge of key partners in the community, we are expanding our efforts to share relevant and timely updates in workforce programs, both credit and noncredit, offered through the college.

Twice a year at both the Middletown Campus and Fauquier Campus, we will convene community partners to hold the Regional Workforce Information Summit (RWIS), informative sessions on the programs available to support the clients they encounter wishing to pursue short-term career training programs to enter the workforce.

In advance of the bi-annual summit, we will conduct participant meeting surveys to solicit input and feedback on the timely and dynamic topics our community partners want to learn more about as it pertains to workforce opportunities. We will also develop a list of FAQs in advance of the event, to make this meeting as informative and efficient as possible for the investment of your time. We are excited to meet together and share this important information for the future success of your clients and our students!

Additional details and information will be pushed to this event page and by email to pre-registered attendees. Advanced registration is strongly encouraged.

However, this market has become substantially more competitive and commoditized. Colleges and universities no longer have a monopoly on being the preferred content creator and distributor and credentialer.”

Give Up Your Shoulds

Published: Published:

Throughout life, many of us are weighed down by things that we should do. I should lose weight. I should make changes. I should go back to school. I should be in a different place in life. When we take a major step back to examine all of our shoulds, it can be an overwhelming experience because we look at all of the things that we want to accomplish…but haven’t yet.

Start 2021 in a 90-Day World

Published: Published:

Organizations are overwhelmingly familiar with setting goals. Leaders set yearly ones, they’re created for specific projects, and they can be short or long term. They’re also applied to new employees, stand-out ones, and to those that need a little boost. They can even be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely). While setting goals is proven to be a major factor in accomplishing them, many organizations fall short of achieving them because they are trying to do too many things at once.
