State Manufacturers Associations Collaboration Initiative: Teaming Up for Talent Development

The role of state manufacturers associations (SMAs) in talent development is expanding, and LIFT is partnering with the SMAs in three member states – Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana – to help them grow in that space and deepen LIFTs relationships. These organizations have a reach to thousands of manufacturers in their states and have served as the voice of manufacturers to create manufacturing-friendly state policies in their state capitals and workforce programming in their communities.
