Ep. 028 - The very real, economic impact on local and regional communities from launching a local FAME chapter to train Advanced Manufacturing Techs.
In this episode you'll listen to my conversation with Tony Davis - Executive Director of the Natchitoches Community Alliance Foundation and member of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Tony helped lead the effort to launch the local GeauxFAME chapter to start training Advanced Manufacturing Technicians in Natchitoches region.
We discuss the near-immediate economic benefits experienced by their region from instituting their unique, market-specific implementation of the FAME program. We also talk about the commitments made and challenges faced by students, employers, and educators - all against the backdrop of the tremendous opportunities afforded by working with FAME - the Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education.
