Forum geared toward unemployed

The Morehead State University/Ashland Small Business Development Center, the Kentucky Small Business Development Centers, Kentucky 4th District Congressman Ken Lucas, and the Ashland Alliance are interested in locating individuals who were affected by the shut down of Applied Card Systems and Kentucky Electric Steel as well as others who are finding it difficult to locate jobs in the area.

The above groups have joined forces to host an Economic and Workforce Development Forum on Thursday, July 31, 8:30 a.m. - noon, at Elite Catering in downtown Ashland. Anyone who has been laid off, unemployed, or looking for a job are encouraged to attend. During this free community forum, a panel of local economic, entrepreneurial, educational, and employment/workforce development officials will be on hand to address attendee’s problems, concerns, and questions.

Invited panelists include Kentucky 4th District Congressman Ken Lucas, Ashland Mayor Steve Gilmore, and representatives from the Small Business Development Center, the Ashland Alliance, the City of Ashland’s Economic Development office, Ashland Community and Technical College’s Entrepreneur Center, Kentucky Department for Employment Services, and Kentucky Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. Additional panelists will include representatives from Morehead State University and Ashland Community and Technical College and representatives from Manpower Temporary Services and Kelly Temporary Services.

Kim Jenkins, Director of MSU’s Ashland Small Business Development Center and one of the event’s coordinators said “our goal is to inform the community about the many employment, educational, and entrepreneurial opportunities available to them. There should be something for everyone including those who plan to re-enter the workforce, change careers, start or continue their education, or open a small business.”

Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 31, in Ashland. This event is open to the public and is free of charge. Pre-registration is required, call (606) 329-8011 to register. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with continental breakfast.
