Welcome to the Desert Communities Employer Advisory Council (DCEAC) web site! The DCEAC is comprised of private and public sector employers working in association with the Employment Development Department (EDD) and the local business community in the Coachella Valley, Palo Verde Valley and Morongo Basin. Our goal is to promote a better working relationship with EDD and the Workforce Development Center in our area, to network with one another, and to provide continuing educational information to our members and the community at large.
During COVID19, we will be keeping you informed via email. We will keep you updated on HR, workforce, labor law and related topics via Webinars. You are welcome to participate in any of the webinars listed on this CEAC website in addition to the webinar notifications that are sent to you.
Beginning June 15, 2021 it looks like COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted (mostly). Our Board has set a goal to host our first “in person” presentation meeting on September 8, 2021; a breakfast meeting. We plan to cover COVID vaccinations in the workplace. Our plans are in the making; some things may change. We will keep you informed.
We have a new Board (details below). Our Board meets monthly and we will hold solution centered business seminars throughout the year, as well as free general membership meetings. Our area includes the greater Coachella Valley (Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Indio and Coachella), the High Desert communities and Blythe. We invite you to join us and become a member!
Membership fees: $50.00 annually.
You are invited to attend webinars listed on this website. Additionally, we will notify you of Webinars presented by our Region 7 as well as others that you may find interesting.
