National Manufacturing Day as a new U.S. holiday? I say yes! And so does Pat Lee, Director of Marketing for the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association (FMA). In fact, she and FMA are right in the middle of a major effort, along with folks from NIST, part of the Department of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Institute to make it happen.
Mark down October 4th and get ready for the 2nd Manufacturing Day. This year 17,000 visitors are expected to participate in over 500 events in all 50 states. hink about the impact this can and will have on kids as they consider and embark on their career paths. Think about the impact this can and will have on elected officials who need to know that the high tech automation in manufacturing can be a massive generator of good, new, high paying jobs. Think about the impact on educators who will be better able to steer their best and brightest students toward careers in manufacturing.
