Three speakers will discuss manufacturing at Chamber breakfast

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce’s Power in Partnership breakfast will feature a “Salute to Manufacturing” on Thursday at 7:30 a.m. at Trinity Oaks at 728 Klumac Road. The Chamber’s breakfast series brings top notch speakers to the community and provides high level networking opportunities.

Gene Beneduce, N.C. State University’s Industrial Extension Project Manager, will be the keynote speaker for November. Beneduce serves the southern Piedmont region that includes Alexander, Anson, Cabarrus, Catawba, Iredell, Montgomery, Richmond, Rowan, Scotland, Stanly and Union counties. N.C. State’s Industrial Extension Service supports local manufacturers with skills training and technical support.

Matt Barr, president of Carolina Color Corporation, will provide a perspective on the state of local manufacturing, and Craig Lamb, vice president of Corporate and Continuing Education at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will share information on the college’s commitment to training a workforce that will meet the needs of existing and emerging manufacturers in the region.

“Made in Rowan” displays from local manufacturers showcasing state of the art technology and robotics jobs of the future will be featured. Area workforce development resources will be available with key information on training, apprenticeship, and certification programs.

Each month, the 2014-15 Leadership Rowan Class starts their day at the breakfast and then ventures out for a full day’s session focused on a different aspect of the community.

The remaining dates for the 2014-15 Power in Partnership breakfasts are: November 20, December 18, January 15, February 19, March 19, April 16, and May 21.

The Power Card is the Rowan County Chamber’s frequent attender program. Participants receive a discounted price for the series and have an automatic reservation for the monthly breakfasts. If you are not a Power Card holder, individual reservations are welcome; however, the reservation deadline is Tuesday by 5 p.m. The cost is $15 for members and $25 for non-members.
