WATCH Tomorrow: America’s small manufacturers: leaders in innovation and job creation

Posted by TGarland on 11/13/2013

Join us for a live discussion tomorrow: 

“ReMaking America” authors will discuss how small and mid-sized domestic manufacturers are accelerating innovation, creating sustainable jobs, and securing our nation’s role in the global economy

Tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. EST, authors of ReMaking America, the just-released volume from the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), will host a live Google Hangout highlighting the immense contribution that small and mid-sized manufacturers are making to American innovation – and the challenges ahead.

The discussion will be hosted by AAM Vice President for State Government Affairs Brian Lombardozzi. He will be joined by Stacey Jarrett Wagner, Manager of Workforce Systems Development at the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership; and Sridhar Kota, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan and former Assistant Director for Advanced Manufacturing at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

They’ll discuss their prescriptions for a thriving U.S. manufacturing sector and take your comments and questions.

We hope you’ll join us!
