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 spotlight our sector's technological, innovative and high paying careers, and most importantly use this day to 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!

To that end, the 'MFG DAY Host Toolkit' is here!
The official guide to organizing MFG DAY open houses, the most frequent type of Manufacturing Day event, is now available on The toolkit answers common questions and outlines steps that every MFG DAY host will find useful, such as: 
·      How to prepare and promote an event
·      How to conduct a tour of the facilities
·      How to follow up with attendees  
If you have not yet signed up to host an event, please do so here. This event is the perfect opportunity to expand knowledge about and improve the general public's perception of manufacturing careers. It is your chance to promote manufacturing's value to the U.S. economy.
