The Northern Area Local Workforce Development Board believes the aim of workforce development isto foster prosperity for individuals, communities, and businesses. In practice, workforce development means offering your employees training, development opportunities, and continuing education programs to maximize their job success and career pathways. The NALWDB takes pride in fulfilling their social responsibility to remain involved in hosting and attending community employment, educational, and networking events.


The mission of the Northern Area Local Workforce Development Board is to educate and train our workforce to meet the changing needs of Northern New Mexico. We are dedicated to achieving this commitment by designing and implementing a locally-delivered workforce development system which will engage government, business, education and labor to provide the Northern Area with a well-training, highly-skilled, and competitive workforce and to provide a seamless, business-driven system of service delivery that enhances access for all customers.


The U.S. Department of Labor has established the “American Job Center” network, in order to create a unified name and brand to identify online and in-person workforce development services as part of a single network of services that use public funding. The one-stop delivery system must use either that common identifier as its name, or use the tag line phrase, “a proud partner of the American Job Center network.”

As the end of the year draws near, The Northern Area Local Workforce Development Board would like to take the opportunity to share a few words of reflection. Not only are we appreciative of the workforce services being provided in our New Mexico Workforce Connection Centers, but the NALWDB also takes great pride in seeing how the partners of these centers have come together to support their communities throughout the holiday and winter seasons.
