In June, CCAWV will be hosting a trio of regional training sessions across the state.

Training sessions are open to anyone interested in attending! There is no fee for CCAWV members, and only a $20 registration fee for attendees from a nonmember county. Light lunch will be provided. Some of the topics to be covered include:

Changes coming to PEIA – what do they mean for your employees and your county?

2015 Legislative Wrap-up –in brief, find out what happened during the recent legislative session and what counties should expect in the coming months.

At the recent board meeting, members discussed the importance of aligning our legislative initiatives earlier in our process, which will include adopting our official agenda prior to the August annual meeting. That will give us a better opportunity to communicate those positions with the entire membership, answer questions and gather commitment! We'll reinforce those positions and seek legislative sponsors during our fall regional meetings!

We sincerely hope you'll do your part to submit any legislative issues earlier and join/support our efforts to strengthen your CCAWV legislative message!

Our board met in Martinsburg, WV on May 17-18 at the Holiday Inn and Suites. It was a very good Board meeting with lots of discussion and interaction among members.

The attendance was great!

Doug Copenhaver and Elaine Mauck , members of the Berkeley County Council welcomed us to the county and contributed much to our weekend.

The fifty-eighth West Virginia legislative session came to a close at midnight on March 14, 2015. It had been an action-packed session from the first day. In all, 1607 bills were introduced. Currently, 262 are listed as “completed legislation” on the Legislature’s website.

The new Republican majority went into the session with a long list of legislative goals. Prevailing wage was one of the first issues they took up. CCAWV supported not repealing, but finding a truer way to calculate prevailing wage rates. SB 361 aims to do just that – in conjunction with WVU and Marshall University’s economic research departments, Workforce West Virginia will investigate and determine the prevailing wage for public improvement projects that will cost more than $500,000.
