Governor Burgum has proclaimed October 6, 2023, Manufacturing Day in North Dakota!
Creators Wanted in Modern Manufacturing
Impact Dakota has limited funds available to organizations to assist with Manufacturing Day activities in North Dakota. Organizations may apply for funds up to $1,500. The funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Application deadline is September 15th.
Launched annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month, MFG Day helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
MFG Day is an initiative of The Manufacturing Institute, with the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association as a founding partner. The Institute grows and supports the manufacturing industry’s skilled workers for the advancement of modern manufacturing. The Institute’s diverse initiatives support women, veterans, students and workers through skills training programs, community building and supporting the advancement of their career in manufacturing. As the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, the Institute is a trusted adviser to manufacturers, equipping them with resources necessary to solve the industry’s toughest challenges.
All events should be registered on the Manufacturing Day website, no matter when they are scheduled. Please click here to register your event, or for more information.
Given the limitations with public gatherings and social distancing practices prompted by the current pandemic, it’s uncertain whether manufacturers will be hosting traditional on-site tours of their facilities on Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) this October. But as we have learned with so many other aspects of our lives, a virtual option awaits.
