WCA bids a fond farewell to Duane Griffiths

Griffiths

Duane Griffiths, a founding father of the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America and current chairman of its Board of Directors, is ending 15 years of service as a board member on December 31.

"Griffiths’ career in the woodworking industry has spanned more than five decades, most notably with Pittsburg State University (PSU) and Stiles Education,” the WCA said in a statement. “He seized on his five decades of experience helping educate students at PSU and train professional woodworkers at Stiles to help steer the WCA’s direction, craft industry-recognized skill standards, and develop the Passport credentialing program.

“In addition to his deep understanding of the industry’s needs for workforce development, Griffiths brought great passion to helping the WCA achieve the goal of developing and growing a skilled woodworking workforce by creating programs that promote career pathways.”
