Manufacturing drill-down forum
On February 26, CMAP will launch its Regional Manufacturing Cluster Drill-Down Report with an event at Harper College's Wojcik Conference Center (1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine) from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., with an optional tour of the College's manufacturing training facilities from 11:00 a.m. to noon. The event will include a presentation of the new report and its recommendations to address the advanced manufacturing cluster's key challenges and opportunities, to be followed by a panel of experts discussing how to support the growth of metropolitan Chicago's manufacturing cluster. Contact Annie Byrne with questions.
CMAP's "Planning for a Sustainable Food System" highlights the importance of local food as it travels from the farm to the table. By producing more of the food we consume locally, we keep money in the region, support local businesses, and have delicious, fresh produce to eat. Visit www.cmap.illinois.gov/food to learn more.
