I recently attended a very interesting event hosted by GPCC regarding the resurgence of manufacturing activity in the region. It was a collaborative event that brought together leaders in the industry and stakeholders in sectors linked to it. The event featured a thought provoking panel that generated a productive discussion and sharing of ideas. One of the issues touched upon was meeting the demand for skilled professionals as the regional industry expands. It was a great opportunity to focus on forward thinking opportunities, and what each of us in attendance can do promote and prepare for growth. From a recruiting standpoint, this was especially of interest and we are looking forward to doing our part to help the industry thrive.
