INTM Endorses National Manufacturing Day--October 4, 2013
INTM is proud to be an Endorser of MANUFACTURING DAY, October 4, 2013, adding our name to the list of hundreds of companies, schools, and professional associations from around the country. Manufacturing operations and management are a large component of the INTM curriculum. Our goal is to provide critically needed skills and qualified employees to compete in our nation and world’s rapidly changing manufacturing environments.
MFG DAY was created by five national manufacturing associations, including the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC) to address common misperceptions about manufacturing. Through a promotional campaign, this day has turned into a movement, with activities going on for the full month of October. Governor Pat Quinn has added the state of Illinois to this group, with a proclamation declaring October to be Illinois Manufacturing Month.
In recognition of this movement, INTM and a number of our local colleagues are offering special events. Here are just a few things happening in the next few weeks:
