Strengthening Eagle County's Workforce
Vail Valley Partnership has made a commitment to strengthening Eagle County’s current and future workforce. We are pleased to introduce Vail Valley Works as the premier local source for professional development. Our professional development programming is designed to establish, train, and support a network of local leaders who are ready to take on the challenges of an ever-changing community.
If a community is seriously interested in creating change and supporting innovation, it will begin with a firm commitment to analyze its challenges and to identify, educate, train, and support a team of public and private sector community leaders to attack those issues. Without that commitment, a community cannot develop the intelligent, creative, and energetic local professional network that is essential for the community to achieve its full potential.
