Hoosier Manufacturing Summit - All are Invited


Congress of the United States
House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Fellow Hoosier,
It is my pleasure to invite you to Playing to Win: Indiana's Future as America's Manufacturing Leader, a summit discussing the Hoosier manufacturing tradition and how we can innovate in order to continue to lead in this field. At this event, I will be hosting experts in the manufacturing sector from around the State of Indiana. Leaders from the automotive industry, trade representatives, business professors, and other manufacturing professionals from across the sector who will gather to share ideas and best practices for out-working and out-innovating the competition.

The first panel, entitled, Racing toward Tomorrow: A Sector-Specific Profile of the Automotive Industry, will tackle the current status of the automotive industry in Indiana and how we can continue to lead in this field. The second panel, entitled, Developing a Winning Game Plan: Policy Prescriptions for continued Growth, will cover the future of the manufacturing sector more broadly and panelists will cover topics such as retooling, workforce training, trade imbalances, and market trends. All panelists will focus on Indiana's role as a current and future leader in this sector and there will be time for a question and answer session with the audience for each panel. I hope that you, as a stakeholder with insight to offer in this field, will join us for this discussion.
