- On Wednesday, January 9, I traveled with executives from Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) into Washington to visit with Assistant Secretary of Labor, Jane Oates, and her chief of staff to discuss a Department of Labor grant for an automotive employability curriculum.
- Also on January 9, we had a conference call with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), its foundation, the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and Haas Automation, Inc. to discuss increasing support from SME for this year’s national conference. Several items are under consideration including supporting more contests and complimentary workshops.
- I’ve written previously about Rebuilding Together and its Kickoff to Rebuild, an annual NFL-sanctioned event to rebuild houses and bring together communities in Super Bowl cities. This year, the SkillsUSA chapter at Bonnabel High School in Louisiana will participate as volunteers.
