NMMA urges members to hold Manufacturing Day events

Publish date:

National Marine Manufacturers Association president Thom Dammrich is encouraging members to participate in Manufacturing Day, a month-long celebration that kicks off Friday.

The event gives boat and accessories manufacturers a chance to boost the industry’s advocacy efforts, Dammrich said.

He said the NMMA is standing by to help manufacturers invite a member of Congress to their plant.

"Friday is Manufacturing Day and it's being celebrated all month long,” Dammrich said in a statement. “This is our industry's chance to grab the nation's attention and show young people, educators and families what marine manufacturing really looks like as we look to build our current and future workforce.”

To help members share the message about Manufacturing Day with their employees, as well as on social media, NMMA partners at the National Association of Manufacturers have created a Manufacturing Day Social Media Toolkit.
