Manufacturing Strategic Plan for the Southeast Region
– MAKE IT in Massachusetts

This is a Statewide initiative lead by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development. The goal of the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program is to create a fully coordinated manufacturing training system to meet the employment needs of manufacturers across the state. As part of this initiative, statewide meetings occurred monthly throughout the fiscal year.  Regions convened to discuss the 5 year plans and strategies with time to check in on the planning processes. Each region sent their Manufacturing Captain and additional representatives based off of responsibilities and content of the meeting.
