CMTA celebrates CA MFG with exhibit in State CapitolPosted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on June 4, 2018
You might recall from CMTA's earlier celebration and magazine feature that 2018 is the Centennial Anniversary year for CMTA. In 1918, five founding companies started the Association (then called the California Manufacturers Association) because they were aware of the huge and growing role they played in the regional economy. 100 years later the same things drive our association and the sector itself - innovation, job creation and competitiveness.
This week CMTA has set up a California manufacturing display in front of the Governor's office in the State Capitol to help us celebrate our Centennial year and to launch our efforts for this year's Oct. 5 Manufacturing Day. The exhibit emphasizes every reason why our State leaders should work to attract more manufacturing. With only 4.5 percent of last year's U.S. manufacturing investment and a manufacturing sector that continues to lag the national renaissance in job growth, California must enact policies that make our state more competitive for retention and attraction of manufacturing growth.
Please stop by the exhibit on the first floor of the State Capitol this week to take a selfie and tweet your picture showing your support of California manufacturing. (Hashtags: #CAmfg, #CMTAcentennial, MFGday2018)
