Manufacturing Council to Meet August 19th

The United States Manufacturing Council (Council) will hold the third meeting of the current members' term by teleconference on Wednesday, August 19, 2015. The Council was established in April 2004 to advise the Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to the U.S. manufacturing industry.

The purpose of the meeting is for Council members to review and deliberate on recommendations developed by the Workforce subcommittee looking at issues of improving the image of manufacturing as a career path and developing skilled workers for consideration by the Manufacturing Council. The agenda may change to accommodate Council business.

The textile industry is represented on the Council by Jenny Houston, Executive Vice President, Warwick Mills; New Ipswich, N.H., who appointed in February, 2015, by Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritsker.
