We were introduced to the best practices for solving a common issue for manufacturers - how to find, develop, and retain employees with the skills needed now and in the future!

Our goal was threefold:  We offered our attendees sessions designed to help manufacturers find and keep employees.
Success Stories presented by manufacturers, including Kroger Manufacturing Springdale, The Gorilla Glue Company, Q Labs, and UPS, 
How to Partner with Educational Resources with speakers from iSPACE, Great Oaks, Cincinnati State, and the Ohio Department of Higher Education, and third,
Connections to Regional Programs such as LIFT, Ohio Dept. of Veteran Services, Partners for a Competitive Workforce, and the Southwest Ohio Regional Workforce Investment Board.

Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted, was our Keynote Speaker.  After the general session, there were  opportunities to attend four break-out sessions of choice.
