In addition to serving on NeMAC as advisors to the state agencies, many of our council members also participate in regional industry-partnerships such as the Central Manufacturing Industry Partnership.
Brian Deakin, HR Manager at Becton Dickinson, is a business champion for the Central Manufacturing Industry Partnership. The partnership is a collaboration between local manufacturers, education, chambers of commerce, and workforce and economic developers in Buffalo, Phelps, Kearney, Adams, and Hall counties. The goals of the partnership are to develop the local workforce, partner with schools, increase transportation options, and build new and deepen existing partnerships with schools.
In this five minute video, Brian shares the benefits he’s experienced with the partnership and shares advice to manufacturing businesses who may be interested in becoming involved.
