As a way to strengthen ties and support Christian County, the Missouri Job Center, will host a Rural Outreach Initiative Town Hall on Thursday, Nov. 8, from 5:30-7 p.m., at the Christian County Resource Center.

The town hall will be held at 1106 West Jackson Street in Ozark.

“The purpose of this town hall is to identify any challenges the county may be facing, as well as address needs in the local workforce,” said Mary Ann Rojas, Director of the Missouri Job Center. “We’ll be gleaning information from a panel discussion made up of 3-5 local employers.”

Employers and elected officials from Christian County will be on hand to discuss current trends in employment and what resources are needed to develop or retain workers. The public is invited to attend this free event.

“The Missouri Job Center is focused on continually addressing workforce needs in the

community by partnering with local companies to ensure workers are adequately trained,” said Sharon Walker, president of the Job Center’s Workforce Development Board.
