Matt Dwyer stressed the importance of reporting placements of shared system services customers by entering data into the computer system.

  1. Proposed System Name Change from Universal Resources to Hempstead Works
  2. Mr. Gill described the need to establish a simpler and more compelling brand identification for our local system. He described how the idea of replacing the name "Universal Resources" with "HempsteadWorks" has been discussed with our Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and our Youth Council. The name change has been suggested by our Web consultant. It would also be appropriately timed to coincide with our Web site overhaul, our local system certification and our application for statewide certification. Lois Benjamin offered a motion to institute the name change. The motion was seconded by Elvira Lovaglio-Duncan and adopted by the members.

  3. Grant Development

Memoranda from Margaret Moree were distributed to the members. The memoranda pertained to the following subjects:

  • Likelihood that current year WIA rescissions will be implemented;
  • Reductions in federal appropriations for next year;
  • Upcoming training on the Financial Management Technical Assistance Guide (TAG).

Mr. Kenny described the WIB Staff Statewide Projects Matrix, along with the WIB grant development activities, for Program Year 2000 and 2001.

  1. One-Stop System Matrix
  2. A copy of the Hempstead/Long Beach Local One-Stop System Resource Matrix was provided to each member. Mr. Kenny thanked the members for providing the information necessary to complete the matrix. He described how the matrix would be used for community audits and strategic planning purposes. In addition, he indicated that this document would be posted on the system Web site.

  3. Customer Flow Toolkit
  4. A list of the team members for the "Customer Flow Toolkit Training" to be conducted at the Huntington Hilton on January 8, 2002, was provided to the members. An agenda for the session was also provided.
