October 4, 2013 has been designated Manufacturing Day.  A countrywide push has been established to get manufacturers to host events on that day and tell their story to students, families, elected officials, customers, suppliers and business partners.  

Since California still leads the nation with 1.25 million manufacturing jobs, it's important that we help lead this charge to prove how important the industry is to our workers, families, economy, innovation, and overall prosperity.

As a manufacturer you know how important your facility is to a community.  We must show off to the country our technological, innovative and high paying careers, and most importantly use this day to get the word out and celebrate the industry that built our country and the great state of California.  If we do, it will help our respective regions understand that we must fill our pipeline with skilled workers, compete for emerging manufacturing sectors and celebrate every manufacturing job we can get!

If you'd like to host an envent on the fourth or just find out more information on how to get the word out go here.
