Your Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce has facilitated the formation of an Industrial Roundtable in which plant managers, VP’s, and engineering managers from industries across the county are invited to participate.

The main idea behind the rountable is to provide a platform that brings industry leaders together on a quarterly basis to find out what goes on in each other’s facilities and provide opportunities for sharing of resources.

The chamber will periodically facilitate speakers on topics such as:

  • Advice on becoming a drug-free workplace.
  • How to build customer loyalty.
  • How to prevent turnover.

In addition to facilitating the quarterly meetings, we also connect industries with educators for collaboration on workforce needs.  We help industry professionals with opportunities to step into the classroom for presentations as well as help facilitate student tours of industry facilities.  We coordinate teacher institutes where groups of educators tour facilities to witness the highly skilled, well-paying positions that are available in Coffee County.
