Advancing Manufacturing Action Team 2013 Charter
In 2013, California Forward and the California Stewardship Network hosted Regional Forums attended by more than 1,700 business and civic leaders. The forums spotlighted top priorities to support middle-class job growth and regional economies focused on advancing the triple bottom line of economy, environment and social equity. The 2013 Action Team Charters set down parameters, expectations and a work plan to move these priorities to statewide policy.
Advancing Manufacturing was identified a priority by both urban and rural regions and has also become a major priority of the state, championed by GO-Biz. This Action Team will work with industry, especially small and medium-sized manufacturers; universities and community colleges; economic development and training organizations; and state government to develop strategies to advance manufacturing and exports.
