NFPA Continues Endorsement of Manufacturing Day 2018
"NFPA member companies report that workforce development is ranked highest among the industry's challenges,"
Traditionally, MFG Day has consisted of facility tours. However, NFPA's Student Career Connections program allows for other options as well, including:
· Employee Q&A: Engineers explaining to students what "a day in the life" is like, how they got into the industry, etc.
· Team Project: Engineers work with students to help assemble a fluid power classroom kit.
By engaging in this program, members can share their expertise with students, promote their companies and career opportunities to the local community, and make meaningful connections with educators.
NFPA members interested in getting involved with any of these options or with their own ideas for a MFG Day event should contact Stephanie Scaccianoce at sscaccianoce@
