ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Chamber of Commerce leaders want all Chamber members to help the city become "Certified Work Ready" to help with economic growth.

Chamber President Catherine Glover and incoming Chairman John McDuffie took the "Work Ready" assessment at Albany Technical College.

"Work Ready" is a national program that measures a community's core skills and work habits.

Albany needs about 100 more people to take the assessment to become certified and show industry we have an educated and viable workforce.

"It should be good for us to be one of the first communities to begin the recovery from the economic situations that we are in now. So we want to encourage our private employers to send their employees out to be certified," said Dr. Anthony Parker, Albany Tech President.

The Chamber is asking Albany employers to take the Certified Work Ready assessment before December 31st so that Albany can become only the second Georgia community to earn the distinction.

You can find out more at Albany Tech. Call (229) 430-3563.
