Have you heard about Dream It, Do It WNY?
Dream It, Do It WNY (DIDI WNY) is a private-sector led, state-supported initiative designed to engage, educate and employ the next generation of advanced manufacturing talent by encouraging young people to pursue post-secondary opportunities with a plan and a purpose.
Earlier this week, our Manufacturers Council, with the help of members Jaeckle Fleischmann & Mugel, LLP, Lumsden & McCormick, LLP and Summer Street Capital Partners, presented a briefing on the components of the 2014/15 state budget that will have positive tax implications for many qualified NYS manufacturers.
Here at the Partnership, we’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for their inaugural Advanced Design & Manufacturing Impact Forum this August – a brand new program focusing on the intersection of advanced design and advanced manufacturing.
Yesterday, we had the opportunity to join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as they awarded Congressman Chris Collins their Spirit of Enterprise award – a distinction given to Congressional members whose voting record reflects support for pro-growth, pro-jobs policies.
The Partnership’s Manufacturers Roundtable series is a way for people with similar challenges in manufacturing to share best practices and connect with other professionals. Going forward, roundtable groups may establish the relationships or networks so people can reach-out when advice is needed or to just brainstorm a problem. Each group gets to decide its future!
