CBIA is hosting Manufacturing Innovation Day on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at the State Capitol.

This free event showcases the innovative advances and economic contributions of this critical industry.

Manufacturing has a huge multiplier effect on the state's economy, creating additional jobs and driving economic growth.

Attendees will get a look at the results from a new manufacturing workforce survey commissioned by the NSF Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing Center, Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, and hear a discussion on workforce development programs.

The second part of the day features a manufacturing exhibit on the first floor of the Capitol. Legislators and other elected officials will be invited to tour the exhibits.

This year, we’re also showcasing workforce development.

Whether it’s an apprenticeship program, an employee who participated in a state program, or a worker who has changed careers, we want legislators to know how you find solutions to critical workforce shortages.

Please consider bringing an employee who has such a story.

Mark your calendars for May 17 and join us for this important program.

If your company would like to be an exhibitor, please contact Adam Ney (860.244.1933).
