October 2, 2015 has been designated National Manufacturing Day.  In fact, at the behest of CMTA, the California State Assembly even passed a resolution last month (ACR 94 by Assemblyman James Gallagher) officially designating the same day as California's Manufacturing Day.

A countrywide push has been established to get manufacturers to host events and tell their story to students, families, elected officials, customers, suppliers and business partners.  

Since California still leads the nation with 1.3 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!

You can find the 'MFG DAY Host Toolkit' hereIt helps you organize MFGday open houses and answers common questions and outlines steps that every MFG DAY host will find useful.
If you have not yet signed up to host an event, please do so here. This event is the perfect opportunity to expand knowledge and improve the general public's perception of manufacturing careers. It is your chance to promote manufacturing's value to the U.S. and California economy.
Whether you host an event or not, make sure you or your employees tweet your coolest manufacturing picture on October 2nd with the hashtags #CA #MFGday.
