SHIP Advisory Committee

The L&I SHIP program has created two review committees based on the 2011 legislative mandate that put the program in permanent status.  The members represent business, labor and department experts. Members are appointed to serve three-year renewable terms. The review committees will provide assistance to the department, making recommendations regarding funding priority areas and recommending applications that merit funding.
