    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, October 22, 2009, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on the state’s economic development activities. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission is examining whether the state’s economic development offices overlap or leverage other federal, state and local programs. At this hearing, the Commission will discuss governance issues among the various key state agencies charged with managing economic development activities and examine how successful those agencies are in achieving their goals.

    The Commission will hear from the executive director and president of TeamCalifornia, who will discuss that organization’s role in coordinating economic development activities in the state. A representative of the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency will talk about how the state aligns its workforce development programs into a larger economic development strategy and how activities are organized within the agency help achieve this goal. A panel of local economic development experts from the Economic Development Collaborative of Ventura County and the Stanislaus Economic Development and Workforce Alliance will share best practices from their organizations’ experience in coordinating economic and workforce development activities and will discuss how the state’s workforce development programs might be better organized and coordinated to improve regional and statewide economic growth. Finally, the State Treasurer will discuss that office’s role in economic development financing programs and how it coordinates with other state agencies and local organizations.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments. A business meeting will follow the hearing.
