Welcome to the website for the Northwest Private Industry Council. Please regard this site as a work in progress as we strive to improve and build on the foundation that has been started here.

This website is meant to deal with workforce development issues as they arise in the seven counties of Northwest Minnesota. The Northwest Private Industry Council has dealt with, and will continue to deal with, such diverse workforce development issues as the lack of trained workers, the out-migration of the best and the brightest youth, the aging of the local workforce and the preparation of youth for their entry into the workforce.

Your opinions and your suggestions are valuable to us. Please contact us and let us know what can be done to improve this website.
