CMMA CTE Jamboree at Saint Cloud Technical and Community College on November 16
CMMA is excited to host our fourth annual CTE Jamboree! The CTE (Career and Technical Education) Jamboree is intended to close the gap between education and industry. The event features an experienced lineup of speakers that are active in CTE in Minnesota. Following the presentations, join us for a tour of St. Michael Albertville CTE facilities.
The CTE Jamboree will focus on creating viable partnerships between education and manufacturing. More school-centric than most CMMA meetings, attendees will learn about best practices in promoting manufacturing careers in a K12 setting, learn how best to forge relationships between industry and education, learn about grant funded opportunities, and more.
School board members, superintendents, principals, counselors and CTE teachers are invited to attend. Manufacturers are invited to attend. CMMA recommends that you take a "team approach" - educators and manufacturers from the same community are encouraged to hear the information together. Is YOUR school/community ready to invest in the CTE focus that is taking place in education right now? The format will allow local manufacturers and educators to interact and envision programs and partnerships.
As is CMMA's policy for general meetings and tours, all K12 school representatives are invited to attend at no cost; registration is required.
2023 Speaker lineup: details coming soon
TOUR: St. Cloud Technical and Community College - New Expansion (Advanced Manufacturing Center)
Following the presentations, join us for a tour of the new SCTCC Advanced Manufacturing Center.
The Advanced Manufacturing Center was funded by a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) and additional dollars from SCTCC. Groundbreaking on the project was held in October 2022.
The Advanced Manufacturing Training Lab at SCTCC expands and renovates current space, installs state-of-the-art equipment, and creates a learning environment for students that will mirror their experience while working in industry. The programs that will benefit from the lab include: CNC and Advanced Machining; Computer-Aided Design Manufacturing; Computer-Aided Mechanical Design; Energy & Electronics; and Welding/Fabrication.
In addition to improved facilities for SCTCC programs, the lab expands training opportunities for those currently in the workforce, which supports the creation and retention of high-quality, in-demand jobs throughout the St. Cloud region, particularly for unemployed and underemployed individuals.
$20/member* $30/nonmember K12 school representatives are invited to attend at no cost; registration is required. Includes light breakfast. CMMA requests remittance for all reservations not canceled prior to the meeting. *If a company is a CMMA member, ALL employees are eligible to attend at the member rate. Special needs?
