2019 Manufacturing Summit

f t # e
Our 2019 Manufacturing Summit will be held on Friday, August 2, 2019 at the Greater Southern Tier BOCES, Elmira, NY.

Each year, we invite NY-23 manufacturers and industry experts for a day full of networking and opportunities to learn about policy, new technologies and tour a local manufacturing facility. 

This year our theme is GROWTH.

Growth is about community; it’s about working together. 

We stand with the entrepreneurial spirit and hardworking dedication our manufacturers demonstrate. As job creators, they deserve to have the tools and resources they need to succeed. Their businesses are the backbone of not just NY-23 but also our national economy and provide high-quality, good-paying jobs for our families.  We want them to thrive right here New York because we take pride in the American work ethic.

Make sure to follow @RepTomReed on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates. The time is now to #GrowInNY23.
