WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced that it is seeking nominations for members to serve on the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship for the 2023-2025 term.
Authorized by the National Apprenticeship Act, the committee advises the Secretary of Labor on ways to expand, modernize and diversify Registered Apprenticeship programs and provide equitable access for all workers to participate and succeed in the national apprenticeship system.
The department’s Employment and Training Administration will accept nominations for the national Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship until July 30, 2023. Members will be appointed to two- or three-year terms.
“The Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship welcomes the diverse views of industry and stakeholders across the national apprenticeship system to expand and strengthen Registered Apprenticeships,” said Acting Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training Brent Parton. “The Department of Labor looks forward to leveraging the expertise of committee members to continue to ensure U.S. workers have access to high-quality, good-paying jobs.”
President Biden announced the relaunch of the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship in February 2021 and in September 2021, the department announced members for the 2021-2023 term.
