MFG Day, an initiative to raise awareness of the many opportunities in modern manufacturing,” is your opportunity to showcase the hardwood industry. And by opening the doors of your facility, you will also be opening the minds of community leaders, students, parents, and teachers as to what the hardwood industry is all about. Join the effort!
- Why: “Our country’s future is tied to the continued success of the manufacturing industry, and manufacturing’s success will be determined, as it always has, by its next generation of leaders.”
- How: “Host a MFG Day event, and register it on CreatorsWanted.org, the new digital home for MFG Day, so people in your area can find it and attend! MFG Day is your opportunity to stand up and be counted, showcasing the reality of careers in your industry.”
- When: The initiative begins on the first Friday of October (October 2 this year) but events extend throughout the month. Pick the day that best suits your calendar, and the calendars of those in your community.
Why is MFG Day especially important this year?
Right now, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturing is especially critical to our country! “Manufacturers, the men and women who make things in America, are the ones making the test kits, personal protective equipment and daily items Americans need.” Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase and strengthen the hardwood industry!
