On October 7th, 2016, throughout America, Manufacturers, Manufacturing Associations and Government bodies sponsored a series of events as part of Manufacturing day (MFG DAY).
MFG DAY was just one component of a much larger and longer term initiative that seeks to address common misconceptions about manufacturing. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers will begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.
MFG DAY was the rallying point for manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive. Doors were opened and important conversations started; it was a huge success.
The Manufacturing Consortium of Long Island (MCLI) was an active participant in MFG DAY and hosted a Gala in honor of the day. The Gala was a sold out event and representatives from industry and government came together to celebrate manufacturing. Congresswoman Kathleen Rice presented a number of commendations from State officials and Vikrum Aiyer – Chief of Staff of the US Patent and Trademark Office, delivered the keynote speech.
MCLI are passionate advocates for manufacturers of all types here on Long Island. Their mission is simple; to help sustain and grow Long Island’s industrial base. Their tireless work is helping to raise the profile of Long Island companies both at home and overseas. Anthony Acampora (Partner-in-Charge) – one of the founding board members of this exciting organization – provides counsel and support to both the organization itself and emerging businesses throughout Long Island.
