Manufacturing Day will be here before we know it. To help manufacturers and business organizations get a head start with their event planning, we are partnering with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce to hold lunch and learn sessions throughout the state offering information on everything that is needed to coordinate a successful celebration come this October. 

Throughout the nation, Manufacturing Day (made possible through a national partnership involving NAM and NIST MEP) continues to grow in popularity with companies opening their facility doors to parents and students in middle school, high school, and even college. If you haven’t participated in Manufacturing Day before, don’t be intimidated. At these one-hour lunch sessions, we provide you with a starter kit containing sample letters to schools, press releases, tour plant examples, and much more. Additionally, we will provide success stories and testimonials from companies about their events, along with tips on what works and what doesn’t. Don’t miss out on another Manufacturing Day – join us in inspiring the next generation of manufacturers.
