Vermont’s Core Strength:
Resources and Models for Workforce Education and Training
Thursday, December 14 | Capitol Plaza Hotel, Montpelier
AIV’s annual meeting is the premier forum for addressing critical manufacturing and economic issues facing Vermont, bringing together leaders from across business and public sectors, and we are holding our 97th Annual Meeting December 14 at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier. This year we are focusing on one of the greatest challenges for manufacturing and many other sectors in Vermont — addressing the education and training necessary to keep Vermont’s workforce productive and competitive.
The day’s agenda will focus on several key resources and programs, and we intend to highlight others in future events during the new year. Programs and resources addressed will include: Certified Production Technician programs, featuring the services provided by Community College of Vermont and highlighting the experiences of GE Aviation and Hazelett; Manufacturing Technician Apprentice programs, featuring the services provided by Vermont Tech and highlighting the different programs at GE Aviation, GW Plastics, and GS Precision; and the Vermont Training Program, featuring the support provided by the Department of Economic Development and highlighting the experiences of North Hartland Tool, Kalow Technologies, and Trow & Holden.
The event will conclude with a luncheon address and Q&A with Governor Phil Scott on his administration’s priorities for strengthening Vermont’s economy heading into the new year and legislative session.
The event should be of interest and value to any Vermont organization, whether you are facing education and training needs yourself, providing education and training services, or providing other employer services that would be of interest to your fellow attendees. Although the primary focus of the featured programs will be manufacturing, the Vermont Training Program is available to several different sectors, and the technician and apprentice programs can provide lessons and ideas for education and training initiatives in many sectors beyond manufacturing.
