The Texarkana USA Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the addition of Camille Powell to the Chamber professional team as the Program Manager for Workforce Development.
“I am very excited to have Camille join our team as the Program Manager for Workforce
Development. She will lead our efforts to implement a workforce initiative utilizing the ACT
Work Ready Communities Program ® . Her primary goal is to assess and develop the workforce capability of the region through ongoing partnerships with education and industry leaders to further develop and refine both short and long-term workforce development goals,” said Robbin
Bass. Powell will also seek to match workforce development needs to appropriate training
solutions and assist in the guidance of program development where workforce preparedness gaps exist.
Powell attended Henderson State University, where she majored in family and consumer
science with a specialization in foods and nutrition. Powell most recently worked as a Workforce Career and Educational Outreach Specialist for Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas. In her previous position she built connections between school districts and local employers, and scheduled individual sessions for students to discuss careers, goals, and education requirements.
