The Guild X is an action driven, business based coalition that collaborates with educators to achieve the business community’s workforce goals. Just like Master Craftsmen of medieval guilds who trained apprentices, today’s business community has an important role to play in training the next generation of skilled workers. The Guilds are designed to help businesses contribute to solutions to the region’s workforce development challenges.
Guild X Summit – The First Step
Building a strong workforce pipeline in Ventura County is a complicated business. However, success is possible if all stakeholders engage. The Guild X Summit was the first step in the creation of a modern version of the historic guild training model.
Following the Summit, industry sectors agreed to meet to define their industry’s role in the workforce development collaboration with educators. The WEC will help the sectors implement their role as Master Craftsmen building Ventura County’s workforce.
Guild X Sector Meetings – The Action Step
Everyone is welcome to attend Guild X Sector meetings. The Guild X partners businesses with educators to design new programs and to update existing programs to train the region's skilled workforce. The Guild X is a business facing program, with business defined goals, and business driven agendas. Add your voice to the Guild X and help us build tomorrow's workforce today.
The Manufacturing Guild X meets every second Wednesday of the month and the IT Guild X meets every third Tuesday of the month.

A “Business Spotlight” is a new feature of the Guild X meetings! At the start of every Guild X meeting, a Ventura County business gets to introduce itself, its products and services to the Guild. The Spolight permits the Guild members to network and get to know one another. View our library of past Business Spotlights, or reach out to us to be spotlighted at an upcoming Guild X sector meeting, by clicking on the button below.
