“Where Science Gets Down to Business”

“Where Science Gets Down to Business”cnc-training

Los Angeles Chapter meeting on November 18

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) industries are critical drivers of economic growth. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that seven of the ten fastest growing occupations are in STEM fields, and California is expected to have over 1 million STEM jobs within five years, far more than any other state. Our State’s and indeed our Nation’s future economic success is closely tied to innovation, invention, intellectual property development, entrepreneurialism and preparing a workforce with the talent, creativity, skills and knowledge to innovate in STEM fields.

Kelly Space & Technology, Inc. (KST) is a privately-held company established in 1993 serving the aerospace, defense and technology industry sectors, based in San Bernardino, California at the former Norton Air Force Base. KST operates the Aerospace Research & Development Center (ARDC) as a center of technical excellence to develop, test and deploy critical technologies that provide advancements in defense, aviation and space. KST’s business approach is to identify and deploy revenue-generating, commercial applications of space-related technology while creating financially-viable and sustainable lines of business.

Please join us in Los Angeles on Friday, November 18, 2016, 7:30am – 9:00am PDT (networking at 7:00am), when Michael J. Gallo, President & CEO, Kelly Space & Technology, will describe how, concurrent with KST’s project development and testing activities, KST and its 501(c)(3) non-profit, Technical Employment Training, Inc., has implemented business-education partnerships to provide our youth and adult students with relevant, exciting, hands-on instruction and training that captures student interest, motivates life-long learning and produces a technologically literate workforce. KST believe this investment in building the capacity of our residents to effectively compete for demand occupations within the various STEM related industries will not only help build our business, but transform our region through educational attainment, workforce investment and economic development.

The meeting is free for members & $40 for non-members ($30 Early Bird until November 11). For more information and to register to attend the meeting go to http://adfsdnov16.eventbrite.com.
