Tomorrow: Women in Manufacturing Symposium

We’re seeing a lot of “firsts” for manufacturers.

Just last week, the NAM hosted its first-ever economist forum.  Next Tuesday, the NAM will sponsor the first-ever Presidential Forum on Manufacturing.

And now comes word that the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) is delivering a first of its own: the “Women in Manufacturing” symposium.  The event kicks off tomorrow in Cleveland and runs through Wednesday.  Review the slate of speakers here.

As the PMA puts it,

This unique networking and educational event, designed exclusively for women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry, will provide an opportunity for participants to share perspectives, network with colleagues and hear from leading female executives in the manufacturing sector.

And what are manufacturers saying about this inaugural event?

“The first-ever PMA Women in Manufacturing Symposium brings together women in manufacturing to focus on best practices and interaction that will provide another platform for engaging the industry.”

That’s from Kellie Johnson, the president of ACE Clearwater Enterprises and also the chair of the NAM’s Small and Medium Manufacturers Group.

The symposium looks like a great way to connect with manufacturers from around the country. For more on tomorrow’s event, click here.
