(Victorville) The Victorville Chamber of Commerce is hosting an Economic Enhancement Forum featuring guest speaker Jack Stewart, President of the California Manufacturers & Technology Association, on October 27, 2011 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Conference Center located at 12603 Mariposa Avenue in Victorville.
Jobs are disappearing in California and, in an economy where every job counts, manufacturing matters more than ever. Manufacturing jobs are an essential engine of growth with high wages, innovation, and tremendous spillover effects in the economy and service sectors. California Manufacturers and Technology Association president, Jack Stewart, will present statistical information on California’s loss of recent manufacturing investment and explain what that means for the state’s economic recovery and job base. Stewart will also outline key state policies that, if passed, will lower operating costs, ensure predictable regulations, and develop skilled workers to make California a more competitive place to operate.
Forum is open to both members and non-members. The cost to attend is $30 per person, or $240 for a table of 8, and includes lunch. Reservations are required and must be received no later than October 20, 2011. For more information on this event, or to RSVP, please contact DeAnna Gorgei-Martindale, Special Events Manager, Victorville Chamber of Commerce at (760) 245-6506 or visit the Chamber website at www.vvchamber.com.
