Now in it’s 12th year, we welcome your school or educational organization to join us again at the
ACM Aerospace Industry Future Workforce Opportunities Fair this November!
This year, ACM is partnering with Connecticut. Dream It. Do It. to add interactive stations to engage students and raise awareness about manufacturing. Last year, nearly 600 students, teachers and school counselors from over 30 schools attended and this year we hope to have over 1,000 middle school and high school and college students participate! Teachers have commented this is their best class field trip of the entire school year!
The goal of the Future Workforce Opportunities Fair is to make middle school, high school, college students and their teachers, guidance counselors, parents, and communities aware of the broad opportunities and well paying careers available in the local aerospace industry. Those attending will have the opportunity to speak with over 90 local aerospace firms to learn about the valuable career opportunities that exist in the industry and discuss the expectations employers have when hiring new employees.
There will be no cost for schools to participate. ACM will also provide parking free for school buses at the Connecticut Convention Center.
Aerospace Components Manufacturers (ACM Inc.) formed in 1999 as a non-profit in support of the small to medium-sized suppliers in CT’s aerospace industry and has since expanded to Southwestern MA to form the Aerospace Cluster. ACM membership exceeds 115 companies supporting over 9,000 employees and offers their customers a world-class manufacturing capability and lead in competitive cost, innovation and customer responsiveness. The economic challenges of the aerospace industry brought our member companies together, forming the Cluster, in an effort to retain existing business and capture new business.
