The CGMC is excited to welcome Bob Kill, CEO of Enterprise Minnesota, as the keynote speaker at the CGMC Summer Conference at noon on Thursday, Aug. 3. He will provide an update on the health of manufacturing statewide and how manufacturers in different regions of Minnesota view current and future prospects for their industries.
 
Kill, a long-time manufacturing executive and well-known spokesperson for Minnesota’s manufacturing industry, is regularly quoted in national and regional media on manufacturing trends and industry outlook. He has appeared before the Minnesota State Legislature and the U.S. Congress emphasizing the high value of manufacturing to our economy. He received national recognition in 2010 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST/MEP) , as Group Innovator, for the State of Manufacturing strategy. In 2011, he was recognized by Twin Cities Business Magazine as “one of 200 Minnesotans you should know.”

The CGMC Summer Conference will be held Aug. 2-4 at the Bigwood Event Center in Fergus Falls. The full conference schedule can be found here.
