Andrew Crapuchettes, CEO of EMSI, will join a panel of presenters to discuss the WIA Scorecard on Monday, March 12, 10:45 a.m. to noon at the NAWB Forum in Washington, D.C.


A key barrier in WIA reauthorization has been the system’s lack of ability to report a collective, fully vetted, cost-benefit and impact assessment of its programs and services. NAWB and its partners have designed an economic impact scorecard model that is currently being reviewed by some of the nation’s top-level economists. NAWB encourages all WIBs to consider the scorecard model, and will share the core components of the pilot project including methodology, data collection, analysis, and communication of results.

Industry Briefing

In addition, Luke Jankovic, a senior representative at EMSI, will serve as a panelist on one of the sessions of the Industry Briefing on Monday, March 12, 4:15-5:30 PM. Luke’s session will be on manufacturing.


Six Industry Briefings offer a broad overview of the key growth industries in the U.S. These sessions provide new insights into the competitive forces driving each industry, and the workforce and skill shortages that could pose threats to their continued viability. Ultimately, these insights should lead to better deployment of local resources where it is most needed.

Each session features an overview of the industry, an industry association representative that identifies industry trends, and a specific company representative that shares insights from the ground level. A moderated question and answer session will follow the presentations, to include participants in the conversation.
