Partnership prepares for Manufacturing Days

Manufacturing Days represents the opportunity for regional manufacturers to speak to state politicians about the policies that are of most importance to them.

In two weeks, on March 23 and 24, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York will be hosting its eighth annual Manufacturing Days in Albany.

MACNYThe main goals for the two-day event are clear:

  • lower taxes for manufacturing businesses
  • low-cost and reliable utilities
  • fair workers compensation programs
  • better workforce development to ensure long-term industry success.

Monday, March 23, will feature both a lunch and dinner reception, as well as three panel discussions regarding legislation, workforce, and manufacturing in the media.

Tuesday, March 24, will consist of a breakfast reception and group meetings with local delegations of legislators.

The Partnership, and our Manufacturers Council, fully supports MACNY and their work at Manufacturing Days.

Positive policy outcomes are the result of significant time and hard work advocating for our manufacturing members at events like this.

By producing a strong Western New York presence, we will be able to show how important manufacturing is to our region and thus, will be able to create a positive business climate for our member companies.

The Partnership will be uniting with representatives from the Buffalo Niagara Manufacturing Alliance (BNMA), the Greater Niagara Manufacturers Association (GNMA), and the Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier (MAST) to present a cohesive representation of the western region of our state.

I would highly encourage any interested manufacturing members to join me; the more participants, the more we will be able to accomplish.
