MCC President's Reaction to the Obama Administration's Announcement of Manufacturing Communities (05/29/2014)
"Achieving this designation is a major step in bolstering our area’s advanced manufacturing industry, creating more opportunities for middle-skill careers, and strengthening our local economy. As a partner with the City of Rochester in this federal initiative, we are grateful that the Obama administration believes in our vision to help transform the economic landscape of the Greater Rochester area by strengthening the manufacturing workforce pipeline. Our efforts with the City of Rochester are an example of how we can work together and leverage our resources to achieve a successful model of economic and workforce development."
