Strategic Plan – Revised March 2020

Statewide/Regional Leadership

The CACT Director, and the team of Regional Key Talent, act as workforce systems integrators to address the statewide needs within the Advanced Manufacturing sector, identifying and connecting needs and resources. They advance sector strategies,  drive regional development and the adoption of effective workforce and economic development practices to assist colleges and regions in creating more and better career education (CTE).

The CACT Director is a contact for statewide industry organizations and employers with the intent of assisting engagement with educators and facilitate business/industry connection with key talent and college programs.
