National Manufacturing Day – Open Your Doors & Minds

Manufacturing Day is Friday, October 6. This is an annual event during which North American manufacturers open their doors to showcase the potential of manufacturing and foster interest in manufacturing careers. Manufacturers are having a challenging time finding skilled workers needed and these jobs have been hindered by the public perception that careers in manufacturing are not desirable, when in fact these are high-quality, long-term rewarding careers.

Last year, the BDC partnered with both the Monroe County Intermediate School District and the Monroe County Community College to conduct the first ever Manufacturing Day in Monroe County! We had over 100 Monroe County students in attendance! Here is a link to the article we published last year on the event:
