Keeping Talent Local
Bradley Kittel, who recently graduated from Michigan State University’s Applied Engineering Sciences program, finished school with something not many grads are used to these days: a job. And Bradley wouldn’t have landed his job in greater Lansing without the Capital Area Manufacturing Council, an industry cluster council of Capital Area Michigan Works!.
Like many students, Bradley attended an engineering expo and career fair through MSU where he connected with Michelle Cordano, executive director of the Capital Area Manufacturing Council. Michelle shared his resume with local employers, and Bradley soon got a call to interview with Dowding Industries in Eaton Rapids. Read full story

Bradley also appeared on the Business Beat with Chris Holman.

The event will take place at the Demmer Shooting Sports Education and Training Center in Lansing, from 5-9PM. The evening will include dinner, drinks, entertainment by an MSU String Trio and a silent auction (see below). There is a members-only event and is free! In addition, staff will be on duty for those interested in trying out archery or firearms. Keep your eyes peeled for your invitation!

CAMC Silent Auction
CAMC will be holding a silent auction, in conjunction with the CAMC On-Target Celebration, to kick-off a CAMC fundraiser to support a local manufacturing summer camp in 2015 for kids! The camp is designed to introduce kids to an alternative career path in manufacturing, as well as expose them to the great job opportunities with Mid-Michigan manufacturers. The week long day camp is for 6-9 graders and will be held at the Capital Area Career Center.
