Northern Kentucky leaders stepped forward to make a collective impact on this issue when they formed the Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Development Coalition in 2014.

The Coalition is being co-chaired by Rhonda Whitaker of Duke Energy, in addition to Mr. Vogt. It includes representatives from the Northern Kentucky Chamber, Impact NKY, Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corporation, Skyward, Gateway Community & Technical College, Partners for a Competitive Workforce, the NKADD/Workforce Investment Board, Brighton Center, and the Northern Kentucky Education Council.
