Bringing Awareness to
the Manufacturing Industry

Flex-Cell Precision is one of a host of companies in
Lancaster County participating in a national event known
as Manufacturing Day. In fact, Lancaster County intends to
make a week of it.

Nationally, Manufacturing Day is a project of the National
Association of Manufacturers and aims to "inspire the next
generation." Always the first Friday in October, the event has grown to nearly 3,000
events involving more than a quarter-million students from every state. Last year,
President Obama issued a proclamation declaring National Manufacturing Day.
The steering committee planning Lancaster's event for 2017 believes the industry
has outgrown one day. It's putting together a schedule of events for students,
educators, parents and community leaders.
ACTIVITIES PLANNED OR UNDER CONSIDERATION INCLUDE:
Field Trips: Students from all 16
school districts in Lancaster County are
participating in tours of area manufacturers.
The committee is considering developing
a virtual field trip for students who remain
at school, as well as parents and others.
Family Events: Some manufacturers
are opening their doors to parents and
interested community members, as well.
In addition, Thaddeus Stevens will host
a series of presentations for parents
throughout the week.

Community Buzz: Look for public
service announcements, media stories
and more during the week. Join in the
conversation at #LancasterMakes and
#MFGDay17.
Women Recruiting: A grant from the
National Science Foundation is funding
tours and information sessions at local
companies for high school girls. The
young women will tour Arconic, Flex/Cell,
Dental EZ, Pepperidge Farm and Astro
Machine Works, among others, as well
as Thaddeus Stevens College
of Technology.

"The viability of Lancaster's manufacturing sector directly impacts families in our
community in many ways," says Janel Cross, president of Align Financial Services
Group and chair of the Manufacturing Day steering committee. "As a firm serving
many manufacturing clients, we believe more families need to be made aware of the
career and wage potential in manufacturing jobs here in the county in order to make
more informed decisions about their educational paths."
It's not too late for businesses to participate! Contact Janel Cross or Jesse Steffy
at Align Financial Services Group at 717.207.9230 or info@alignfsg.com for
more information.

Additionally, throughout the
fall the Lancaster County
Workforce Development Board
is collaborating with business,
community and education to host
a series of "Redefining Career
Success" technical career forums.
These free career exploration
fairs will feature local employers,
training providers and skill
developers showcasing the many
high priority occupations found
here in Lancaster County. The
events will include workshops
for parents of career/collegebound students, discussions with
industry leaders, and a chance
to win scholarships toward
qualifying educational expenses
at a local post-secondary
institution.
