CNA is proud to endorse the first-ever Manufacturing Day on October 5, 2012. The day will highlight the importance of the Manufacturing industry to the United States economy and draw attention to the many rewarding high-skill jobs available within the industry.

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.
