Become Involved & Support the Manufacturers’ Association
Whether as an Associate Member or a Manufacturing Member, The Manufacturers’ Association is committed to providing its’ member companies an opportunity to become involved in many of its activities. The input of our members is always welcome and is critical to our continued success as we expand and extend our reach in both membership and geographic area served.
Those directly and indirectly involved with Manufacturing and logistics have a great degree of insight and a wealth of good ideas which the association can benefit and use for the good of all of its membership!
The Manufacturers’ Association offers a range of opportunities to get involved:
Numerous committees provide members to get involved in the activities of the Association.
- Marketing & Membership Committee
- Annual Meeting Committee
- Golf Committee
In addition to a thorough wage and salary and benefit surveys, the Association frequently polls members on issues raised in the community or by fellow members.
This meeting and dinner has developed into a premier community event where several hundred business executives and community leaders gather to network and enjoy a high profile keynote speaker. There are also several sponsorship opportunities offered for this event. Recent speakers have been Dr. Ben Carson, Penn State Football Coach James Franklin, Stephen Forbes, Jeb Bush, Astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, Oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard, and Seal Team Six Leader, Robert O’Neill.
Our yearly golf outing benefits local student educational programs ran by the Manufacturers’ Association. This event has raised needed funds to assist us in our mission to help the community. Every year companies sponsor, many golfers participate, have a great time, and contribute to our worthwhile cause.
There are many opportunities throughout the year to volunteer at one of our events and help support the Association.
Member Ambassador Program
This program is designed to strengthen relationships between our current members, especially newer ones, and to provide a more accessible ‘front line contact’ to get answers to questions, stay current on events, training, and services being offered.
The Association offers services to assist manufacturing colleagues in finding new employment situations. Services can be provided in a variety of settings: one to one counseling, job search workshops and job fairs. All services are coordinated with the local Career Link and Work Force Development Board. Also the Association partners with the Career Professional Executives Networking Group (CPENG) in helping those individuals working through a transitional period of their employment by providing networking opportunities within the region.
