Thank you for your interest in the Talent Pipeline Management™ (TPM) and the TPM Academy™ of North Carolina. Building on the success of the previously held national- and state-based TPM Academy cohorts, the NC Chamber is hosting the inaugural TPM Academy of North Carolina for partners interested in implementing TPM in their communities.

The TPM Academy™ is an in-person training for state and local chamber, business association, and economic development agency leaders, as well as employers, to learn the TPM approach to drive partnerships with their education and training providers based on industry need. The TPM Academy is facilitated by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and is supported by a customized curriculum that serves as an employer handbook and gives participants the knowledge, skills, and abilities to implement talent supply chain solutions on behalf of their employer collaborative members. In addition, the corresponding TPM web tool activates the six TPM strategies to streamline data collection and visualization for employer partners. TPM Academy graduates become members of the TPM National Learning Network (NLN), ambassadors of the TPM approach that regularly collaborate to learn from one another’s successes and challenges implementing TPM projects, and collectively continue to grow the TPM initiative.

We recognize that attending the Academy alone will not result in change for your community—it will require your commitment to identifying, developing, and integrating tactics throughout your approach.
