Bobbi Shinn, coordinator of the Hanscam Center One-Stop, was recently awarded the Certified Workforce Development Professional credential by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals.

Bobbi Shinn, the Hanscam Center One-Stop coordinator, exemplifies the degree of professionalism and commitment to excellence that America needs if it is to continue to enjoy a world-class workforce, said Ed McCann, association president.

Workforce development professionals facilitate the process by which individuals prepare for, obtain and maintain employment and self-sufficiency, officials said.

The credential recognizes the training, experience and expertise of professionals in the field in 12 areas of competency including career development process, customer service, job search skills and program management, officials said.

I was really excited because Im only No. 352 in the U.S. Im the only one I know of in Curry County, said Shinn. It took a long time to get and Im happy about it.

Shinn was presented with the credential at the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals in Reno, Nev.

The Certified Workforce Development Professional program is administered and endorsed by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals.

The associations mission is to be the national voice of the profession and to meet the individual professional development needs of its membership, officials said.

    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • European investors look past Ukraine, focus on ECB

Ukraine reported its forces were under fire from Russian tanks again on Monday, as new signs emerged that the turmoil was damaging the European economy.
