What is Manufacturing Day?
Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

Pairing Schools With Manufacturers
As part of our mission, “To serve manufacturing as a trusted advisor providing solutions that impact and grow the California economy,” CMTC is working to partner high schools, middle schools, and adult education centers in California with manufacturers in their area to provide first-hand learning experiences for students -- especially those in ROP, STEM and CTE programs.
Please contact CMTC’s Outreach & Communications Manager, Steve Brand, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (310) 263-3018.
