Welcome to a special highlight episode of the Made in America podcast. On this episode Ari has pulled over a dozen clips from podcast guests talking about the great resources in our state.
We have manufacturing associations and organizations that other states would love to have!

Hear first from representatives of these organizations, and then from the manufacturing leaders that have gained so much from their work with these groups. Unfortunately, we were not able to highlight every manufacturing group and organization in the state, but we pulled out 6 of the most frequently discussed.

It is so important to get involved and to learn, share and succeed together! We hope this episode inspires you to take advantage of these incredible opportunities all around you.

Please share this episode with other manufacturing leaders and get them involved too!
