We are a group of concerned educators, manufacturing companies, and community leaders working together to ensure a future pipeline of workers needed as the advanced-manufacturing industry continues to grow in North Carolina. We need to raise the awareness of advanced-manufacturing occupations especially for students who are in the process of choosing their future career.
