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 facilities: Cameron 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!
Recently CAMC member, Niowave, contributed a letter of appreciation to Governor Rick Snyder on behalf of our important alliance!
The Capital Area Michigan Works! (CAMW!) industry councils, such as the Capital Area Manufacturing Council (CAMC), are a great example of regional collaboration.

STTF Available Now
Posted October 15, 2014
One again, Governor Snyder has recommended and the Legislative has supported the creation of the Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF) program for Fiscal Year 2015 (October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015.)
The STTF provides competitive awards for the development and implementation of employer responsive training that will enhance talent incomes, productivity, and employment retention, while increasing the quality and competitiveness of Michigan's businesses. The STTF program will ensure Michigan's employers have access to the talent pipeline they need to compete and grow, and participants have the skills they need for in-demand jobs. The program will create and expand collaboration between the Michigan Works! Agencies (MWAs), economic development, and educational agencies by funding demand-driven training that addresses talent shortages hampering the growth of Michigan's priority industries. The STTF will be used to fill any documented skill mismatch that currently exists in Michigan, including, but not exclusively limited to skilled trade occupations.
Several CAMC members have already submitted their applications and a handful are putting the final touches on their applications. As of 10/10/14, $9 Million was left...so it's not too late to find out if your company could benefit from these training funds.
For more information, contact Michelle Cordano, CAMC Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
