Join us as a Volunteer Leader

Why do we spend our time as volunteer leaders of this organization? We do it for the students. The professionals looking to advance their knowledge in manufacturing and get recognized for their skills. The teachers who are trying to inspire and excite their high school and middle school students into careers in manufacturing.  The College and University students who are eager to lead the next 30 years of  manufacturing. The high school and middle school kids making parts in their lab, learning about taking a concept and transforming it into reality. The elementary school kids whose curious minds are kindled by concepts we deem basic.

We do it for them. They need inspired people to mentor them, to inspire them, to coach them, to make them look forward to go to work every day because they love working in manufacturing. Join us!
