Workforce Development

Workforce Development


As a directive prescribed by the BN Advantage Economic Development and Marketing Strategy, the McLean County Chamber of Commerce has been fully immersed in the area of Workforce Development since November of 2015.  Over the last 18 months, under the leadership of Chairman Bob Miller, Vice President of Operations at Advocate BroMenn, more than 50 individuals have committed significant time and resources to fulfill the goals outlined in the BN Advantage strategy while identifying ways to address and meet the talent pipeline needs of McLean County employers. 


There are numerous links below that outline the organizational structure, summarize the outputs of an extensive employer needs survey, and organizes the logic models of 17 organizations and institutions to ensure collaboration and eliminate duplication.  Additionally, there’s a link to a video showcasing the work that’s been done beginning in November of 2015 and fully outlines the primary goals and objectives of the work that has and will continue to be our strategic workforce focus.


For specific questions, or with an interest to engage or invest in these efforts, please email Charlie Moore at
