LINCOLN –Commissioner of Labor John H. Albin has been elected Treasurer of the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA). NASWA membership, which represents state and U.S. territory workforce agencies nationwide, selected 15 new board members and 10 alternate members to represent its regions, including a five-member executive committee. The board’s duties are to direct the business of the association.
“NASWA is a wonderfully diverse organization which offers a multitude of vital services to its members,” said Commissioner Albin. “Workforce agencies across the country have been facing unprecedented challenges, and NASWA has been a great resource and partner in navigating these challenges in order to best serve the citizens.”
Albin has been involved in the delivery of workforce services for the last 31 years, first as a benefit appeals hearing officer, then General Counsel to the Nebraska Department of Labor, and now as the director of the Department. He has been serving as the Region VII (Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska) director on the NASWA Board of Directors.
“We are very fortunate to have this group of experienced, committed individuals providing guidance for NASWA,” said Scott B. Sanders, NASWA President and CEO. “NASWA Board members represent the energy, expertise, innovation and talent of those spearheading workforce development efforts across the country, who have been on the front lines helping America’s workers over the past year-and-a-half.”
NASWA provides policy expertise, shares effective state practices, and promotes state innovation and leadership in workforce development. Various teammates from NDOL serve on NASWA committees and incorporate best practices.
Incoming executive committee and board members assumed their respective posts upon election at the NASWA Annual Membership Meeting Sept. 22, 2021. All positions serve a one-year term, except the treasurer, which serves two years.
