Participate in Manufacturing Day 2014

MFG-DAY-2014The third annual Manufacturing Day will be held October 3rd, 2014.

The organizers have over 22 events planned for this year – a jump of more than 55% over last year. They are hoping to reach a goal of 1,250 officially registered events for this year and are asking for organizations to participate and register their events.

There are four ways to get involved: Host an event, Attend an event, Sponsor the overall MFG DAY mission, and share the news.

One of the main challenges facing manufacturers today is a growing gap in skilled labor. To address this issue, more young people must be inspired to pursue manufacturing careers. Having students participate in Manufacturing Day events is a wonderful opportunity to start this conversation and begin ensuring the future of manufacturing in the U.S.

Mfg-day-educator-toolkitMFG DAY is a group of industry sponsors and co-producers designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges.

 

This group (FMA, NAM, MEP, Manufacturing Institute, ISM, SciFi Channel) has designed an educator toolkit to help in addressing the issue of the lack of skilled labor.

Manufacturing Day is for students, parents, educators, media, customers, suppliers and the community at large. Visitors will learn about real career opportunities, training and resources. In addition, manufacturers will learn about business improvement resources and services delivered through manufacturing extension partnerships.
