ENGAGE MANUFACTURING’S NEXT GENERATION
MFG Day – Friday, October 7, 2022
Over the next decade nearly 4 million manufacturing jobs will be needed and 2.3 million will go unfilled due to the current skills gap. The inability to meet labor demands continues to negatively impact your individual company and the nation’s economic growth unless action is taken.
It’s up to all of us to change the perception of manufacturing, and get the next generations of employees, their families, their schools, and their communities interested and engaged in the powerhouse of the American economy. MFG DAY is your opportunity to capitalize when the country is focused on manufacturing. Open your doors and allow the public to see for themselves what modern manufacturing is all about.
MFG Day isn’t just a day, or another box to check. It’s an opportunity to truly connect and engage with students, families, educators, veterans, and your community to help expose them to the wonders and opportunities within manufacturing. You have a passion for your business – share it with others!
If Friday, October 7th doesn’t work for your company? Not to worry. Any event throughout the year counts, as long as it’s introducing people to the world of manufacturing!
Hosting an event is simple, and the rewards are ever blooming. There are resources from NTMA and the Manufacturing Institute with step-by-step instructions on how to host an event, best practices, video testimonials, and more.
