“North Carolina: The State of Manufacturing”
The North Carolina Chamber is the exclusive state affiliate for the National Association of Manufacturers, so industry leaders are always in attendance at this event. Topics will address regulatory issues and how employers can assist in creating a job-ready workforce that will provide manufacturers with the talent necessary to compete on the global stage. Structured as a breakfast event, attendees will have ample time to dine, network with fellow guests and connect with exhibitors prior to the morning program, which features high-level industry experts who will discuss current trends, forecasts, and challenges faced by the manufacturing community.
