CAMC's National Manufacturing Day's Initiative was a HUGE Success!

On October 3 -- National Manufacturing Day -- three CAMC members opened their doors to welcome high school counselors and STEM teachers into their facilitiesCameron Tool, Orchid Orthopedic Solutions and Gestamp!

This event was a great success!  Each manufacturer made the attendees feel welcome and created presentations with them in mind. In addition, the partnership with the Capital Area Career Center was a perfect example of what collaboration should look like!  Together the CAMC and the CACC created an event that can be a replicated each year and in other counties. 

Because no matter their aspirations or education level, there are great career opportunities for our kids, right down the street!
