Granville Business Improvement District 48 to Celebrate Area Manufacturing on October 1
The Granville Business Improvement District (BID No. 48) in Milwaukee will hold two free events recognizing the area’s manufacturing strength on Tues., Oct. 1 at the Hilton Garden Inn – Milwaukee Park Place, 11600 W. Park Place.
Chief Executive Officers and executive staff of Granville BID 48 members and partners are invited to attend the Tuesday, October 1 breakfast and interactive session on “Bringing MATC to Granville Soon: The Impact on Our Collective Value.” Registration is at 7:15 a.m., with breakfast at 7:30, and the interactive session from 7:45 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.
Corey Vanderpoel, MBA, Managing Director for Schenck M&A Solutions, will address the value of a workforce and how not preparing today for the next group of employees and leaders will negatively impact a company’s value, and consequently, its total market capitalization.
Sandra McCleary of the Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) will present a pilot program designed by MATC and Granville BID 48 Partners to bring training to Granville. During the breakfast and interactive session, attendees will discuss and select the needs for incumbent training for production workers, sales staff, and office personnel that will bring value to BID member companies and increase the capitalization of the entire Granville area.
McCleary will lead the discussion to bring MATC to the Granville BID and provide the needed skills on an on-going basis. The costs for local manufacturers will be minimized by Workforce Advancement Training (WAT) Grants. Breakfast attendees will work together to design the curriculum MATC will bring to the BID by January, 2014.
From 11:30 a.m. – 1:15 p.m., there will be a “Celebration of Women in Granville Manufacturing” with a free luncheon and panel discussion.
“Women are playing critical roles in the success of manufacturing, and this is evident in Granville BID 48 member companies in many positions: on the production floor, in the front office, purchasing, sales, and marketing,” said Mary Hoehne, Granville BID 48 Executive Director. “As a sector, manufacturing is looking to fill the gap, and women will continue to be a vital role for the future. Often overlooked in the field, we will celebrate the ladies who make Granville manufacturers great. This luncheon is a chance to thank these women and get ideas how to retain and attract more women to manufacturing.”
The luncheon will feature three panelists discussing their professions and how they have found fulfilling careers in manufacturing, taking career paths that have not been traditional and demonstrating how skills are transferable to great manufacturing careers. The panel will be comprised of…
• Susan Paprcka, Corporate Marketing Director, United Milwaukee Scrap
• Diane Rawski, Vice President Sales, Supreme Casting
• Dorothy Walker, Dean of Technical and Applied Sciences, Milwaukee Area Technical College
Registration in advance is required by calling 414-357-5493 or via email at email@example.com.
