The eastern counties of Region 3&4 have three ECI groups meeting
on a regular basis. These include the Lakes Area Employers' Council,
the Kossuth County Employers' Council, and the Storm Lake Employers' Council.
Activities for these groups are planned
several months in advance, and include guest speakers, tours, and seminars
of interest to local employers. Recent meetings and seminars have covered
OSHA, Unemployment Insurance, Skilled Iowa, and STEM.
