The Northeast PA Manufacturers and Employers Association (NEPA MAEA) and Council (NEPA MAEC) recently celebrated National Manufacturing Day by holding two events.

The Association, as well as the legislators on hand, honored all manufacturing attendees at their Annual Legislative Roundtable at the Top of the 80's in West Hazleton. Each manufacturer was awarded a certificate on behalf of MAEA, the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Schuylkill County Commissioners, as well as the legislators on hand.Legislators

Following the roundtable, legislators and business professionals were invited to tour Henkel Consumer Goods Inc. to celebrate the technological advancements in manufacturing and to highlight the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy, as well as to showcase the rewarding, highly skilled jobs available in the manufacturing field.

The Council celebrated the day by taking one of their YES (Your Employability Skills) classes on a plant tour of Solar Innovations in Pine Grove. Company representatives, including President Greg Header, guided students around the facility, giving them an inside look at how a manufacturing facility operates, as well as careers that are available to them. "Educators,
manufacturers and our communities working together can change the image of manufacturing, while at the same time promoting the careers that are available in the field," said MAEA and MAEC President Darlene J. Robbins.

YES (Your Employability Skills), which is administered by the Northeast PA Manufacturers & Employers Council, is a 120-hour, 1-credit, year-round elective course that addresses the shortfall of basic skills that employers say are lacking in many job applicants. The course addresses 38 modules in all, including communication, team building, interview/resume/cover letter writing, completing a job application, personal finance, conflict resolution, and time management.
