The Bay Area Council’s Workforce of the Future Committee convened its first Advanced Manufacturing Occupational Council on Wednesday, August 1 to address talent gaps in the region. The meeting addressed the need to build a larger supply of talented candidates through stronger marketing of the advanced manufacturing career path. Advanced manufacturing offers a variety of career growth opportunities that provide good wage earning capacity without the need for a four-year degree.

As the Bay Area economy continues to hum along at a fast pace, it is essential to maintain the economic advantage of advanced manufacturing. The Council will continue to expand membership engagement in this occupational council, and begin building lasting connections to talent throughout the Bay Area. For more information on the Workforce of the Future’s initiatives, please contact Linda Bidrossian, Senior Vice President, Public Policy.
