Recap of December 2014 Council Meeting

The Council on Virginia's Future, with Governor Terry McAuliffe as Chair, met on December 17, 2014 in the State Capitol. Much of the meeting focused on workforce development in Virginia -- current projects, new initiatives, and challenges. Workforce development has been a key component of Council efforts since 2013 and is also a major part of Governor McAuliffe's New Virginia Economy plan.
