Through open houses, public tours, career workshops and other events, visitors will learn about real career opportunities, training, and resources. In addition, manufacturers will learn about business improvement resources and services delivered through manufacturing extension partnerships.

CNA will continue the celebration of Manufacturing Day on Facebook and Twitter throughout the whole month of October with games, safety tips and helpful manufacturing-related facts. CNA will also be promoting its direct industry involvement at various trade shows, as well as by hosting a webinar on October 26 th titled Human Factors – The Aging Workforce.
