Press release date: January 29, 2013
CLEVELAND, OH—Nearly 300 leading women manufacturing executives, managers and supervisors from across the country will gather in Detroit, MI, on October 22-23, 2013 for the third annual Women in Manufacturing Summit, hosted by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA).
SUMMIT 2013 will provide a unique opportunity for women in manufacturing careers to share perspectives and network with colleagues and other female executives in the sector. The conference will feature industry plant tours, a networking dinner, roundtable and panel discussions, educational sessions and keynote presentations on pertinent business topics.
“SUMMIT 2013 will build off the huge successes of the 2011 and 2012 events,” said Women in Manufacturing program director, Allison Grealis. “The hundreds of women who have attended the past two summits walked away newly motivated from sharing their experiences and building stronger networks. We’re hoping to create local momentum leading up to this year’s program by kicking off the year with our first ever Launch Party next month.”
The Launch Party will be on Thursday, February 21 at 5:30 p.m. at The Henry Autograph Collection Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan (also the location of SUMMIT 2013). Sponsored by Women in Manufacturing with its partnering organizations—Association of Women in the Metal Industries, Automotive Women’s Alliance Foundation, Original Equipment Suppliers Association and Society of Manufacturing Engineers—the Launch Party is an opportunity for women in the industry to enjoy cocktails and appetizers while networking with peers. Attendees also will learn more about SUMMIT 2013 and start conversations that will continue at the conference in October. Register for the Launch Party at www.womeninmanufacturing.org.
Women in Manufacturing is a community designed exclusively for women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry, and want to share perspectives, gain cutting-edge manufacturing information, improve leadership and communication skills, participate in mentoring programs and network with industry peers. Women in Manufacturing is powered by the Precision Metalforming Association, the full-service trade association representing the $113-billion metalforming industry of North America—the industry that creates precision metal products using stamping, fabricating, spinning, slide forming and roll forming technologies, and other value-added processes. PMA’s nearly 900 member companies also include suppliers of equipment, materials and services to the industry.
