"When I joined IAWP I did not realize the extent of its contributions to the quality of our work. The knowledge IAWP has helped me obtain from all over the world has changed my life; it has broadened my view on both - the workforce professionals and the individual. I appreciate being one of this great and outstanding family."
Nils Freivalds, Past-President IAWP Latvia Chapter
"Your mission and the mission of my agency, the Employment and Training Administration, are very much entwined. Our mission is 'to promote pathways to economic liberty for individuals and families working to achieve the American Dream.' Your mission is to make sure that workforce professionals are prepared for the workforce challenges of tomorrow. You equip the workforce system to be relevant."

"I commend IAWP's ongoing focus on providing education and training opportunities to its membership. The needs of our Workforce Development Customers are changing. Workforce professionals will need to stay abreast of the very best approaches to delivering employment, training, and related services to workers and employers. IAWP helps us do that, and I am proud to be a member".
Executive Director, Employment and Training NC Department of Commerce
"Continued membership in IAWP in retirement helps one remain connected to their colleagues and friends as well as stay informed of the developments (at the State Chapter and International level) in the work they chose as a career. I would urge those members who are planning retirement soon to make arrangements to continue their IAWP membership and to stay active in their chapters."
