Section Meeting: Workforce Issues for NJ Manufacturers – The Need for Skilled Workers

Join us for the June 2018 section meeting where Ray Vaccari will share with us the state of NJ’s manufacturing industry, focusing on its workforce issues. NJ has 11,000 manufacturing companies, 90% of which have 50 or less employees. Most of these companies do not have HR departments to help find and develop the skilled workers they need to continue operations and grow in the future. This talk will focus on the issues manufacturers have due to the shortage of skilled workers. Ray will discuss programs the NJ Dept. of Labor has implemented to help train incumbent and new workers. He will also present what educators are doing, particularly in the Career Technical Education (CTE) schools (aka votechs), private schools, community colleges and four year universities. One solution that NJIT has developed is the MechaFORCE Registered Internship Manufacturing Program, M-RIM, in which NJIT acts as a sponsor for apprenticeships, or registered internships, for NJ manufacturers.

DATE, TIME & PLACE: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Location: Spanish Tavern, 103 McWhorter Street – Newark, NJ 07105 (MapIt)
