EDC Vice President Erin Silk Appointed to Florida Workforce Development Association

Business

Erin Silk, a Certified Economic Developer and the Vice President of Business Development Services for The Economic Development Corporation of Sarasota County, has been appointed to the Florida Workforce Development Association (FWDA) board. FWDA is statewide organization that was traditionally comprised of the CEOs of all 24 CareerSource chapters in Florida; CareerSource Florida is Florida’s workforce policy and investment board. Recently, however, it expanded to include economic development professionals, recognizing the value of their voices in conversations about meeting the current and future needs of Florida’s employers and economy. In her work with FWDA, Silk will be working closely with CareerSource Suncoast, the local CareerSource chapter.

“The Florida Workforce Development Association is honored to have Erin Silk join our board of directors. Erin's leadership and economic development expertise is a tremendous asset for the association and will contribute greatly to our charting the path to Florida becoming a global talent leader” said Joshua Matlock, the president and CEO of CareerSource Suncoast. Silk’s work with The EDC of Sarasota County allows her to interact directly with local businesses, which can be useful in this new role. “This group is a testament to collaboration and the way that Florida is leading in workforce solutions. Adding economic developers to the group that is managing our workforce boards will only further help the cause. It shows across the state that people are willing to give time and resources to continue to improve the workforce,” said Silk.
