Michigan Reconnect Manufacturing Roundtable

 

MMA and GLBMA are partnering to ensure your manufacturing voice is heard on the important issue of talent and, specifically, Michigan’s talent shortage.


During her State of the State address, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced her goal of increasing the percentage of Michigan’s workforce with a post-high school degree or high-value certificate to 60 percent by the year 2030. The Administration’s programs, “Michigan Reconnect” and “Mi Opportunity Scholarship,” aim to address the talent challenge and we want your input on how to best achieve that goal.


We invite you to learn more about these programs first-hand from Doug Ross, Senior Advisor for Michigan Prosperity, and Michelle Richard, deputy to Mr. Ross, during a roundtable discussion on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at Saginaw Valley State University.


As manufacturers, you represent the largest sector of Michigan’s economy and are one of the primary customers of the post-high school education system. You are encouraged to attend this roundtable discussion to learn about the Governor’s strategy and provide direct feedback on how that strategy can best meet your talent needs. This your chance to be part of the solution.


We look forward to your involvement in this roundtable discussion. See the agenda at right for details. There is no cost for members to attend.


Thank you,

Mike Johnston, Vice President of Government Affairs

and 

Jeremy Bockelman, Executive Director, GLBMA and The Center's Director  & Senior Business Adviser
