Mark your calendar! The ever popular Operations Managers Meeting will be held this year, October 22-23, in Houston, Texas, at the Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel. The program is being finalized, and registration information will be available soon. This year the program will include current issues in manufacturing – new options for MSDS management, performance-based employee tracking, and updates on the current regulatory environment, and what can be expected from the NLRB, along with a panel presentation from equipment suppliers. Make sure your Operations Personnel don’t miss this opportunity!
The Manufacturing Institute is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2015 STEP Awards! The STEP Awards honor women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in manufacturing. The STEP Awards recognize women at all levels of manufacturing, from the factory floor to the C-suite. These awards illustrate the widespread impact women have on shaping the industry, whether they are running the company, designing the next big product, or testing innovations on the shop floor. This past February, the 2014 STEP Awards were hosted in Washington, DC to honor 160 women from over 110 companies for their achievements.
