Earlier this year, the U.S. Census Bureau began releasing new data tables that federal contractors use to conduct availability analysis when determining whether to establish placement goals for women and minorities as part of their affirmative action programs (AAPs).
Now that the 2014-2018 EEO Tabulation is ready to use for AAP development, OFCCP has posted a notice on its website requiring federal contractors to use the 2014-2018 EEO Tabulation for AAPs developed on or after January 1, 2022. Frequently Asked Questions are also available on OFCCP’s website.
OFCCP will hold training for contractors covering basic information – such as what the EEO Tabulation is, how it is developed, why it is necessary to use – as well as detailed information on how to navigate the tabulation along with a live demonstration. Be on the lookout for more information on the training dates soon.

As the NILG Board President, I wanted to personally reach out to invite you to attend our 2021 National Conference taking place August 1-4th in Nashville, Tennessee. Last year was tough on us all, and as we head toward some form of normalcy, we would love for everyone to join us in the Country Music Capital of the World for much-needed time to learn and reconnect with one another. New this year, we are offering a virtual, live broadcast option for those who are understandably not ready for in-person events. Rest assured if you choose to attend in-person that we will be taking all necessary precautions to host a safe and health-positive experience for all.
However you choose to attend, we promise to provide a highly educational and entertaining conference experience that is invaluable to your professional development efforts. Our recently announced program is packed with knowledgeable and experienced presenters ranging from practitioners and experts to government agency officials and inspirational keynotes, including HBO Vice President of Strategy and Education Carla Moore, and American Country Music Songwriter Chuck Cannon. I encourage you to check out our full conference agenda to see what we have in store.
We have a few different registration packages at varying price points, so please also take a look at those and please note that early-bird rates end on Friday, May 21st, so I recommend registering now to secure the best price, and don’t forget to book your hotel rooms as we are anticipating those sell out early. We currently have 60% of registrants expecting to be in Nashville. Given the changing vaccine situation and travel restrictions, you will have up to 30 days before the conference to identify whether to attend live or virtually. To help you justify your conference attendance, there are several resources at your disposal:
If you would like to show additional support, I welcome your ILG to sponsor the conference. Our team has crafted smaller packages that allow for additional visibility and awareness.
Thank you for your continued contributions to the federal contractor community, and on behalf of the Board, I thank you for your continued support of the NILG and helping us promote this year’s event to your audience.
We hope that you are doing well and in good health. The past few weeks have been difficult, and we are saddened by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. The Philadelphia Liberty Industry Liaison Group is an anti-racist organization. We believe that black lives matter.
A central part of the Liberty ILG’s mission is to liaise with the OFCCP, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) and other fair employment practice agencies to further affirmative action and diversity goals. We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or racism of any nature.
We will continue to work towards our goal as an organization committed to diversity, educating our members on compliance, and promoting Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity.
We encourage you to review this list of resources that can help you in the fight against racism:
The next meeting of Liberty ILG will be held on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at the Temple University Center City Campus, Room 322. You will need a valid photo ID to enter the building. Join us beginning at 8:30 a.m. for breakfast and networking. The meeting starts at 9 a.m.
