DOL is looking for apprenticeship advisors

July 06, 2023

The Acting Secretary of Labor (Secretary) requests nominations of qualified candidates to be considered for appointment to the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship (ACA) for the 2023-2025 membership term. Registered Apprenticeship is highly dependent on its stakeholders' and partners' engagement and involvement for its operational effectiveness. Apart from the ACA, there is no single organization or group with the broad representation of employers, labor unions, and public entities available to consider the complexities and relationship of apprenticeship activities to other training efforts or to provide advice on such matters to the Secretary,

Candidates for consideration to be members of the ACA must represent a constituent base connected to apprenticeship activities. ACA Members should also have:

  1. A demonstrated interest in the national apprenticeship system.
  2. The ability and readiness to devote time and effort to attend all public ACA meetings, actively participate in ACA deliberations, advocate for the apprenticeship system, and participate in planned member activities. Appointed ACA members will meet publicly quarterly.

Successful nominees will be appointed for a specified term designated by the Secretary. In selecting ACA members, the Secretary will consider individuals nominated in response to the Federal Register notice and other qualified individuals.

All ACA membership nominations must be received by midnight no later than thirty (30) days from publication in the June 30 Federal Register. Nominations received after thirty (30) days from the date of this publication will be considered for nomination to the ACA as later vacancies occur.

For any questions concerning the ACA nomination process, please contact Ms. Kenya Huckaby, executive assistant, Office of Apprenticeship, Employment, and Training Administration, at Huckaby.Kenya@dol.gov, with a copy to the ACA at advisorycommitteeonapprenticeship@dol.gov.

For information on how to submit a nomination for the ACA or to learn additional information about the ACA, please visit the ACA's landing page at: https://www.apprenticeship.gov/advisory-committee-apprenticeship.
