What can CAMC do for you?
CAMC offers a variety of benefits to its member companies, including the annual CAMC Wage & Benefits Survey, networking opportunities with industry peers, organizing facility tours that highlight best practices, innovation and operational excellence in manufacturing, and representing the interests of our members in developing a robust talent pipeline in the Capital region through youth outreach and collaborative relationships with area education and workforce development providers.
WAGE & COMPENSATION REPORT
Each year, CAMC distributes an important survey that gathers information about both wages and other components of compensation including time off, retirement plans, insurance plans, and other benefits. Some characteristics of business practices in each company are also collected, including operational schedules, cost of living adjustments, and anticipated wage and salary increases.
The resulting report is a valuable tool in determining compensation and benefits for manufacturing employees in the greater Lansing region. The final CAMC Wage and Compensation Report is available free for CAMC members and participating companies. If your company is interested in participating in CAMC's 2019 Wage and Compensation Study, please fill out and submit our online form. To purchase a copy of past reports, please contact us.
CAMC offers increased knowledge of industry best practices by networking with innovative and forward-thinking peers at member meetings and CAMC-sponsored facility tours.
CAMC members also collaborate to host multiple tours region-wide on Manufacturing Day, or MFG Day, which takes place on the first Friday of October each year. Also, CAMC members come together once a year to celebrate the accomplishments of local manufacturers at our Annual Dinner & Awards Celebration.
There are a variety of CAMC meetings each year, including quarterly board meetings, executive meetings, HR meetings, networking events, and subcommittee meetings.
CAMC provides tools to build a strong workforce, such as outreach to Michigan’s youth, maintaining strong, collaborative relationships with regional education and workforce development providers, and helping to secure training funds for CAMC members
CAMC also leads the Capital Area Manufacturing Day activities, including facility tours that highlight the industry and the great careers available in today's advanced manufacturing sector! Through MFG Day, more than a dozen participating schools (1,000+ students) are exposed to local manufacturers, LCC's Center for Manufacturing Excellence and Impression 5 Science Center.
INNOVATION & BEST PRACTICE TOURS
CAMC offers facility tours for all members (executives and HR professionals). They may also be held in conjunction with a meeting. Facility tours help increase knowledge of industry best practices by creating opportunities to network with innovative and forward-thinking peers and seeing first-hand how member companies drive innovation and enhance productivity in their operations.
Members are also exposed to growing opportunities with CAMC ‘s official partners: CAMW, LCC, MMTC, and LEAP, as well as other local and statewide manufacturing-specific organizations (Intermediate School Districts, WDA, MEDC, etc.) during these tours.
