October brings an emphasis on the world of manufacturing and the quickly changing demands of that portion of the workforce. Technology and highly specialized skills have opened many new and interesting positions in the Iowa workforce. Elevate Iowa has partnered with businesses and training programs throughout the state to offer dozens of opportunities for visits during October. There are a total of 153 MFG DAY events planned across Iowa in 2017. All of the events of the state can be filtered by community at http://www.mfgday.com/events.
Check with local intermediaries, workforce representatives and manufacturers for additional events that may take place in association with Manufacturing Month.
