The Economic Development and Employment Committee is responsible for oversight of effective employment and training programs and advocacy for equal opportunities and affirmative action for employment of local residents, minorities and women. The committee is the community board's liaison with related agencies such as the Department of Small Business Services and Human Rights Commission.
Except for holidays and other conflicts, the committee usually meets at 6:00 pm on the first Tuesday of the month, September-June, in the Jonas Board Room, Metcalfe Hall, Long Island University; Flatbush and DeKalb avenues. However, any person planning on attending a committee meeting is encouraged to check the date, time and location on the community board’s calendar.
