The Champaign Consortium, a local agency that provides job placement and training assistance to low-income workers and the unemployed, said recent changes will not affect its ability to assist clients. Recently, the consortium went through some administrative changes and will now be operated by the (CCRPC) Champaign County Regional Planning Commission.
The Consortium has operated as a stand-alone agency for several decades, and has been a resource for those seeking training and employment in the community. CCRPC’s Community Services Director, Darlene Kloeppel, will serve as the administrator of the program and Al Anderson, who has been with the Consortium for nearly 34 years, will remain as the program’s manager.
“The consortium will continue to administer Workforce Investment Act grants,” said Kloeppel.
“And all field offices will remain open.”
The CCRPC workNet Center offers services in Piatt, Ford, Iroquois, and Champaign Counties.
