LTC to offer community forums Nov. 15 - Dec. 13

Lakeshore Technical College has scheduled six community forums open to the public in an effort to garner feedback from community leaders, business leaders and education leaders to aid in updating the College’s strategic plan through 2016. A number of key factors have influenced the need for an update of the strategic plan including the economic climate and a significant demand for skilled workers.

“LTC needs input to help us identify where LTC wants to be in 2016, identify how the college will get there, and create an integrated process that can be sustained for future planning,” according to LTC President Michael Lanser. “This process will help the college prepare a workforce that meets the continually changing landscape of employment in the Lakeshore district.”

During the 2012-13 school year, Lakeshore Technical College will be celebrating 100 years of service to Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties, and the State of Wisconsin. As the college prepares for the next century, strategic planning will provide the focus for LTC’s next phase of development.

Forums scheduled include November 15 at the LTC-Plymouth Science & Technology Center from 8-9:30 am, December 4 at Orion Energy Systems in Manitowoc from 8-9:30 am, December 5 at the Lakeshore Culinary Institute in Sheboygan from 4-5:30 pm, December 5 at the LTC Cleveland Campus from 12-1:30 pm, December 6 at the Cedar Grove Public Library from 4-5:30 pm, and December 13 at the Sheboygan Falls Public Library from 4-5:30 pm.

Attendees will be asked to provide input to identify LTC’s greatest strengths, opportunities for improvement and how LTC can best help grow the local economy.

Two recent publications, Governor Scott Walker’s “Working Wisconsin Plan” and Tim Sullivan’s, “The Road Ahead: Restoring Wisconsin’s Workforce Development” both have implications for Lakeshore Technical College.

“Lakeshore Technical College exists so the community workforce will be well trained, diverse, and flexible and will meet the needs of a changing marketplace,” according to Lanser. “We will explore all opportunities to meet the needs of employers in our communities.”
