Manufacturing Matters

Share Your MFG Day Photos

National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is all about giving manufacturers a chance to share exciting, contemporary manufacturing techniques with visitors from their surrounding communities— especially students and others who are interested in manufacturing careers. Social media such as Facebook, and Twitter are great ways to connect with these audiences and let them know what a career in manufacturing is about.

On 10/3/14, share your MFG Day Photos with MMA’s Facebook page. Next, tell your employees, friends and family to go vote for their favorite pic. The real value is showing the world what it means to be a Michigan manufacturer and helping portray a positive image for Michigan manufacturing. That’s not all--the winner, determined by number of votes received by noon on 10/6/14 will receive a free ticket to any MMA event in 2014 or 2015—including the upcoming Manufacturing Talent Summit!
