Please join us for Hill Day 2021

Please join us in speaking with your district’s congressional representative (or office staff member) about your involvement with the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NCMEP) program administered by NC State’s Industry Expansion Solutions. We’ll share a list of projects completed in your district and outline the economic impact those projects have had on business in your region. We’d also like to discuss the importance of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program to your regional economy.

We welcome you to be an advocate for the continuation and growth of the program that is focused on helping smaller manufacturers across the state. This year, you can participate from your computer without ever leaving the comfort of your home or office. 


Meet Up: March 1-5

You may meet with the congressional representative in your district or an office staff member who interacts with the elected member on matters related to the NCMEP program sometime between March 1 and March 5. We’ll let you know the exact day and time as soon as the meeting is scheduled with your congressional delegate.  


Time Commitment 

Meetings with congressional representatives are very brief, generally 30 minutes or less. This year, in lieu of travel to Capitol Hill, all meetings will be managed on a virtual platform. You’ll have a chance to speak about the manufacturing challenges you face as well as share your success stories.


Pre-planning Meeting

If you decide to participate, we will schedule a meeting with you prior to the meeting with elected officials to give additional guidance and updates on NCMEP.

Although we can’t meet in person this year, we can advocate for manufacturing with the same spirit, energy and commitment through these virtual events. There is no better time to advocate for manufacturing than today. Thanks, in advance, for your participation.
