Mission Statement: Germantown, Menomonee Falls and Sussex Chambers of Commerce bringing together Manufacturers and Students to raise awareness of the opportunities in the local manufacturing industry and the corresponding educational pathways.
Wednesday and Thursday, October 12-13, 2011
Located at Davians Banquet & Conference Center, Menomonee Falls
Approximately 400 high school students from three communities attended last year’s career expo and saw first hand some of the technology and were able to talk to representatives from 18 different local manufacturers about what career opportunities are available to them. Participating manufacturers included: Harley-Davidson PowerTrain Operations, Wacker Neuson, Magnetek, Plastic Components, Trac-a-Matic, GenMet, Bradley Corp, and more. The post secondary schools were also on hand to be available to students to discuss the types of classes needed and offered to attain the careers they were seeing in action.
Help Us Feed Your Future Workforce! We are soliciting manufacturers as vendors for this career expo as well as sponsors for different facets of this event. We are looking for manufacturers willing to take the time to talk to students, not about a job, but about a career. Contact Toni Yates at the Chamber Office or for more details click here.
