Virginia Energy Workforce Consortium (VEWC) was formed in 2007 to engage energy companies and utilities in strategic, unified, and results-oriented efforts to ensure a skilled, qualified, and diverse workforce to meet future industry needs throughout the Commonwealth. VEWC members include representatives from electric, natural gas, renewable energy, and utility companies; contractors; organized labor unions; industry associations; secondary and postsecondary educational institutions; the public workforce system; and local, regional, and state government agencies.
Our mission is to create an organized approach to leverage the resources of government, industry, education, and labor to develop the best-skilled workers for all stakeholders, in the energy sector in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
We are a volunteer organization.
We welcome all organizations and individuals who are eager to join our efforts toward creating better awareness about Energy careers and the education and training pathways that lead to our industry.
