MFG DAY is changing
people's perception of
manufacturing

Open your doors in 2018!
by Teresa Kent

S

ince its creation in 2012, MFG Day (Manufacturing
Day) has been changing how people view today's
manufacturing environment and inspiring young people to pursue rewarding careers in manufacturing all across
the U.S. There will be a huge shortage of skilled workers in
the next decade. About 3.5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs
will be needed, but only 1.5 million of those jobs will be filled
by skilled workers. The lack of public knowledge of the many
opportunities that the manufacturing sector can provide is
what fueled the National Association of Manufacturers to
create a national MFG Day- A day for manufacturers to open
their door to the community, and allow teachers, students,
legislators and the public in general to see what modern
manufacturing is all about.
With more than 2,500 events each year, MFG Day is
making a big impact with the community and showing that
manufacturing is clean, technology-driven, and secure with
good paying jobs. A recent survey by The Manufacturing
Institute and Deloitte shows that MFG Day does improve
people's view of manufacturing. Students that have attended
MFG Day are 81 percent more convinced it provides good
careers and 84 percent aware of manufacturing jobs in their
community.
The success of MFG Day can be credited to the great
resources they provide potential hosts on their website
MFGDAY.com. The website provides all the necessary tools
to put on a great event. Please mark October 5th, 2018 on
your calendar and be sure to celebrate with the rest of us
by hosting an event. Here are some resources you can find
once you've registered on their site.
* Host Media Guide- a guide to engage with media
* Event Promotion Kit- digital media tips
* Social Media Playbook- tips on promoting MFG Day
through social media outlets
* Web Banners- designed digital graphics for your
website
* Posters & Signage- customizable templates that are

collateral
