“A New Source of Skilled Workers”

“A New Source of Skilled Workers”

San Fernando Valley Chapter meeting on October 17

Your business consultant says “I surveyed your employees and 50% of them have decided to retire between today and the next five years!” What now? Maybe that isn’t in your company, but in the real world it’s TRUE for the entire A&D supply chain. That reality is stacked on top of today’s crisis in finding skilled workers. This month the A&D Forum is presenting a model and tactics that will change the paradigm and keep talent flowing into your company/customers when other companies are contracting from the lack of world class employees.

Please join us in Sherman Oaks, CA, on Tuesday, October 17, 7:30–9:00am, when David Goodreau, Chairman of the Small Manufacturers Association of CA and President of the Small Manufacturers Institute (SMI), will present a regional solution that engages growing manufacturers in a sustainable talent development process. This framework, being created by SMI, Goodwill SoCal and Hope Street Group, is centered around a new Manufacturing Innovation Hub in Los Angeles with micro-regional manufacturing councils throughout LA County. The heart of the Manufacturing Hub will be the large-scale credentialing of world-class entry level workers capable of fast track learning and retention.

This framework restores leadership to industry associations and groups such as the Aerospace and Defense Forum to sustain and create value through this collaboration of industry, academia and private business resource providers. We hope you will join us in a glimpse of new opportunities from connecting growing manufacturing companies with the employees that will empower the economic changes that are coming.

The meeting is free for members ($30 for non-members, free for guests for 2 visits). For more information and to register to attend the meeting go to http://adfsfvoct17.eventbrite.com.

The San Fernando Valley chapter of The Aerospace & Defense Forum is sponsored by CohnReznick, City National Bank, and InVista Associates.
