3rd Regional Illinois HTEC CNC Educators Conference

Please join us at Harper College for the 3rd Regional HTEC CNC Educator Conference on Tuesday October 3rd, sponsored by HFO Chicago.

Come and learn from our Special Guest Speaker - Harry Moser, Founder & President - Reshoring Initiative - Reshoring & Recruiting

The key requirement for a stronger U.S. economy is a larger, smarter, better trained skilled workforce. Ideally the workforce should have the quality, size and demographics of the German and Swiss skilled workforces, but realistically be trained mostly in community and 4-year colleges, supplemented by and coordinated with a growing apprenticeship system. The key to building that workforce is recruitment of more and higher potential students. Harry will present key methods to improve recruitment and will show the role of reshoring (bringing manufacturing and tech services back to the USA), in proving that technical training will once again lead to stable and rewarding careers.
Don't miss this opportunity to see new technology, meet partners for education, network with other instructors and learn more about the Haas commitment to education. Registration and networking start at 7:30am and the conference will take place from 8am-3pm.

The mission of the Haas Technical Education Center (HTEC) Network is to promote and advance manufacturing and productivity through excellence in manufacturing education. We will also be hosting a networking event the evening before.
