I believe that a strong economy requires a skilled workforce and a workforce that can rapidly change to meet new opportunities. As the baby boomers retire we will also be facing a major shortage of skilled workers. This will create great economic opportunities for people who are able to upgrade their skills. PCC will play a vital role in training and retraining our globally competitive workforce. PCC is cost effective and has the ability to respond rapidly to changes. As a board member I will keep this vision as my guiding principle. PCC is a great resource for our region. I will work to make it even better.
