Welcome to the Southeastern Employment & Training Association website. I am proud to serve with a dynamic Executive Board which has taken great steps building upon the foundation laid by our predecessors. SETA is the premier professional association for workforce development professionals in the Southeast Region and beyond. We are proud to represent eight (8) great states in the Southeast.
The 20 member volunteer Executive Board has held steadfast to its commitment to provide strategies, mission and vision, policy, administrative activities, and quality conferences for its members. The Executive Board ensures conference workshops cover workforce programs, fiscal, special populations, professional development, and other needs of attendees to become more efficient in their roles.
SETA’s mission is to provide professional growth opportunities for all workforce development partners. Members of the organization receive additional workforce development opportunities through yearly website access to innovative ideas, results-driven professional development, and valuable networking opportunities. Our partners include workforce development agencies, educational institutions, human resource organizations, economic development entities, and businesses. Membership includes: frontline staff, career counselors, administrators, economic development partners and business leaders.
SETA’s key goals are to:
· Expand the association to encompass the larger and evolving workforce development system
· Provide members with access to real time information, solutions and best practices through networking and a variety of communications platforms
· Reflect the diversity of the SETA membership and balance fresh ideas and new energy with experience and organizational knowledge through a strong, active board
· Exceed members’ expectations as an innovative, adaptable, and flexible resource in an ever changing world as the nation’s premier regional workforce development association
The organization will accomplish this through website information and the Fall and Spring conferences held annually. Simply click on the “Conference” button to acquire information about our upcoming conferences and/or previous conference presentations.
Members also have access to an interactive membership database enabling them to stay in touch between conferences or search for other members in their field. A virtual exhibit hall is maintained on the website where members can find information on exhibitors who attend and support our conferences and other workforce development initiatives. Please accept this as an open invitation for new or renewed membership and to foster our current membership level.
We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming conferences in Louisville, Kentucky September 24-27 and Memphis, Tennessee March 18-20.
