CMTA in the field to promote MFG at four big events

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Sept. 1, 2018

This is the time of the year -- after the Legislature has closed down for the session and before the holiday months ensue -- that provides a perfect opportunity for CMTA to go out into the field to promote the benefits of California manufacturing and some solutions to the sector's challenges.  

Among many events, there are four particular gatherings, for which CMTA'ers are participating, that should be of interest to manufacturers in their respective regions:


1. The Industrial Association of Contra Costa County Forum - "New Regulatory Climate: An Industry Leadership Perspective"

CMTA's Dorothy Rothrock will join Western States Petroleum Assn. President Cathy Reheis Boyd to discuss the implementation of AB 617, which is a bill that resulted from the 2017 cap and trade negotiations to further reduce air pollution in local air districts. Lots of industry from the East Bay will be on hand to discuss how to ensure CARB's proper implementation of the policy.

The forum will take place at Zio Fraedos Restaurant at 611 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA.

Tuesday, September 11, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm



2. CALMatters panel on climate change - "California is a Global Model for Climate Policy"

CMTA's Michael Shaw is a panelist joining former State Senator Fran Pavley and John White, Executive Director for the Center for Energy Efficiency & Renewable Technologies, (and other TBD's) to discuss what has worked and what hasn't in California's ambitious climate change policies. 

The event will take place at the Public Policy Institute of California 500 Washington St, Bechtel Conference Center (1st Floor) San Francisco, CA 94111

Wednesday September 12, noon to 1:30 pm



3. IEA / CMTA 34th Annual Environmental Training Symposium and Conference - "Strategies for Success on California's Environmental Frontier"

CMTA's Dawn Koepke is a featured speaker, presenting on some of California's specific environmental regulatory requirements facing manufacturers.  There are many panels to see at this great annual conference co-hosted by CMTA.

The two-day conference will take place at the San Diego Convention Center at 111 West Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101

Thursday, Sept 27 to Friday, September 28



4. The Ventura County Economic Development Assn. Business Outlook Conference - "Accelerating Value Creation: The Future of Manufacturing, Technology and Innovation in Ventura Co."

CMTA's Gino DiCaro will join other speakers and present the State of California Manufacturing, as well as some of CMTA's efforts in the State Capitol to address the challlenges of new manufacturing investment in California.

More than 200 attendees will attend the conference at the Ronald Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley.

Friday, October 5 at 7:30 am 


** Coincidentally this event is happening on National Manufacturing Day (MFGday) and is a great way to further promote the tremendous benefits manufacturing brings to California's economy and working families
