Workforce Development and Education Committee Meeting
The Attraction (or lack-there-of) of Advanced Manufacturing in the Charlotte Region

Join us for our third (Q3) committee meeting of 2019.  This convening will focus on workforce development in the advanced manufacturing industry in the Charlotte region.  During this full session, we will hear from those representing our workforce development and manufacturing community and how they support the talent pipeline through apprenticeships programs and strategic alliances.

In additions, we will discuss the pathways in which we educate young talent on the future job opportunities in this industry, address what advanced manufacturing is today versus 10+ years ago, and the innovative work taking place in our region.
