2016 Regional Manufacturing Summit – Lafayette, IN @ Wabash National Corporation
Aug 31 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Indiana Manufacturers Association Presents:
2016 Regional Manufacturing Summit

As economists and politicians continue to debate the latest GDP numbers, one conclusion can definitively be determined—manufacturing continues to dominate Indiana’s economy.

However, the manufacturing industry still must manage a number of challenges, including workforce issues, business environment impediments, and regulatory concerns.

Industry representatives, community leaders, and policymakers will meet with the Indiana Manufacturers Association to discuss the state of manufacturing, including our most pressing issue – a lack of skilled workers for our high-tech, high-wage 21st century manufacturing industry.

A brief preview of the 2016 Manufacturing Survey Results will be presented by Katz, Sapper & Miller LLP.

Learn from the experts and network with your peers!
