Here we sit at the end of yet another year that didn’t look a whole lot different than the year before. Although things are not quite back to normal, we have been able to enjoy phases of in-person activity to compliment the many virtual offerings both locally and nationally.

Was it a year of progress and growth: it absolutely was with continued relationship development with members, community partners and subject matter experts, membership growth, and engaged participation in all aspects of EMC resources.

Highlights from the year included a MOU with NBCC to work collaboratively and support skills development throughout the sector as well as the renewed contract with PETL to provide fully funded Manufacturing Essential Skills for Supervisors and production workers. In addition, and with ACOA’s support we were able to aid in various recovery and support activities; we look forward to a continued commitment towards this type of activity.

Moving into 2022 we will continue to provide networking opportunities that reflect your needs and input. A tremendous void in our activity has been the plant tours. I continue to receive feedback as many feel the comfort level is there to proceed with this type of activity. As a result, I am in the process of developing an aggressive schedule of tours throughout the year. These tours will consist of four different goals: professional development, host best practice and area of focus, capabilities awareness and feedback opportunity. Should we need to adjust due to Public Health requirements we will do so without question. If this type of activity is of interest to you, I would be happy to have a discussion about welcoming a group of peers to your facility.

Whether it be networking, initiatives, or programs, we will continue to listen and ensure that all activity is a result of your feedback.

All my best to you and yours for a safe and Happy Holiday season!
