“As I travel the state meeting with manufacturing leaders, workforce development is a topic that comes up in almost every conversation,” said Jason Moss, CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance. “Our organization exists to support Georgia’s manufacturing community, and we are pleased to provide a unique event that addresses this hot topic. The West Georgia region has implemented several successful programs that we will highlight during this event. Our goal is to create an environment where industry, education, and community leaders can connect to discuss and share best practices.
