Manufacturing & the Crucial Role It Plays in Our Regional Economy

Workshops | September 7, 2023

The State of Illinois celebrates manufacturing for the entire month of October.  In recognition of this celebration, on Thursday, September 28 at 10:30 a.m. the Business Navigator Alliance of Southcentral and Southeastern Illinois will host a webinar focusing on the crucial role manufacturing plays in the regional economy.

For this webinar, we dive into regional initiatives that the Business Navigator Alliance are taking to bring new opportunities to our local businesses, by introducing the aerospace industry to Southcentral and Southeastern Illinois.  Paul Gandola, Legal Counsel to the Ohio Aerospace Institute and Angela Griffin, President of Coles Together will detail those plans.  Attendees will also hear an analysis from U of I Extension Specialist Zach Kennedy, demonstrating the significant role that manufacturing has on our economy.

There is no cost to attend and those interested can register here:
