Coming in May, the Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA) will host it's third annual Mayors for Manufacturing event in conjunction with the Cook County "On the Table" initiative. This event will bring together mayors and other local elected officials with area manufacturers to discuss issues ranging from taxes to pensions and workers compensation - hot button issues for today's business leaders. Last year's Mayors for Manufacturing event saw more than two dozen elected officials and 60+ TMA members and guests at the College of DuPage.
Hosted by Prairie State College, this year's event will be a culmination of regional manufacturing-focused initiatives. Agenda and registration information is presented below. Please contact Meghan Gray with TMA for more information or to register.
