The Current and Future State of Manufacturing in Connecticut
ASQ Hartford is pleased to welcome Andrea Cormer, the Executive Director from The Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA). There are many challenges facing Connecticut's manufacturing (the states 3rd largest sector) from workforce disengagement, a growing generational gap to the struggles facing manufacturers themselves.
To combat the struggles facing the future of manufacturing in the state, there are many initiatives underway to increase technological advancement and develop a skilled, incoming workforce. These opportunities are available to businesses, the workforce and Connecticut's educational institutions alike.
In addition to Andreas presentation, we will also be presenting our annual Joseph Trowbridge Quality Recognition Award to one lucky quality leader in Connecticut. As Quality professionals, we all know that recognition for those efforts can go a long way towards improving the morale and motivation. In recognition of that fact, the Hartford Section sponsors an annual Quality Recognition Award, the Joe Trowbridge Award. The purpose of the award is recognize those individuals or teams who have made significant improvements in quality and productivity in their workplace over the past year. To be eligible, nominees need not be members of the Hartford Section ASQ or even be part of the Quality organization. Past award winners have included Inspectors, Engineers, Technicians, Managers, and teams.
We are also doing things a little different this evening. Instead of our traditional 3-cource dinner, we will be moving to a buffet style dinner with carving station. This will help us to reduce the cost of our events to $20.00 per person! We hope to see you this evening as we round out our 2016 programs schedule and look forward to a bright 2017!
