Mr. Ray Yeager, Board Chairperson, and Ms. Petra Mitchell, President and CEO, cordially invite you to the Catalyst Connection Board of Directors Annual Manufacturing Reception & Student Video Contest Recognition.

This year's theme is Making a Difference.  Manufacturing is important to the southwestern Pennsylvania community. We know that a skilled and qualified workforce is key to a strong and vibrant manufacturing sector.  We are highlighting employer engagement and workplace learning opportunities to showcase high demand occupations and build a strong pipeline of young, new workers.  We know that when manufacturers succeed, the ripple effect can be felt throughout the entire economy, where all businesses and communities prosper.
