The Great Lakes Bay Manufacturers Association supports local efforts to educate today's youth, excel adults and continuing education for all levels within the manufacturing field. Supporting these efforts we currently offer a scholarship each year and we are currently working on bring a PRIME school program to the region.
The GLBMA scholarship is supported by the Annual ScholarChips Casino night and the Annual Golf Outing. The scholarship application period is January to March 2017. It is open to members of the GLBMA, employees and immediate family members (immediate is defined as spouse or child still living with employee). Scholarship award is $1,000.00 – renewable for one year, two (2) scholarships awarded. For more details see Scholarship page or click for the application.
The GLBMA is currently seeking information from the Michigan Manufacturers Association and the SME Education Foundation in regards to the PRIME school initiative. We hope that within the next year we can bring a better base for training today's Youth about manufacturing and the opportunities in the region.
Lastly, we are increasing the awareness of Continuing Education and Certification available for those in manufacturing looking to seek a different or new position within their company or beyond. Make sure you check out our events for any upcoming opportunities.
