You are invited to join an informal but informative zoom conversation to discuss challenges and opportunities, and engage with your manufacturing industry peers. All are welcome!
Each month a hot topic will be selected and you are encouraged to bring questions and ideas for discussion. This month our discussion will start with information you’ll want to learn about the impact of ergonomics in the workplace, then we will open it up for all questions and discussion topics.
Meet-ups are open forums so whether you want to inquire about a different manufacturing topic or just want to pop in and say “Hello” everyone is welcome!
