NMMA President: Manufacturing Day Key to Attracting Workers, Boosting Advocacy

Thom Dammrich, NMMA President, is encouraging NMMA members to participate in Manufacturing Day, noting, "Friday is Manufacturing Day and it's being celebrated all month long. This is our industry's chance to grab the nation's attention and show young people, educators and families what marine manufacturing really looks like as we look to build our current and future workforce. It's also a chance to boost our industry's advocacy efforts, which is why NMMA is standingby to help you invite a member of Congress to your plant. Events can be held any time during the month of October to tie to Manufacturing Day. If you do an event, please let Erica Crocker know on our team and she can help you get an elected official to attend and will tout your event on Capitol Hill and in the manufacturing community. Click here to learn more about event ideas and contact Erica at ecrocker@nmma.org. And, to help you share the message about Manufacturing Day with your employees as well as on social media, our partners at the National Association of Manufacturers have created a Manufacturing Day Social Media Toolkit (CLICK HERE). Your voices and the voices of your employees can make a powerful difference for building our future. Let's seize this opportunity!"
