Governor Signs Manufacturing Day Proclamation

October 1, 2020

Gov. Kim Reynolds addressed ABI members during yesterday's virtual 2020 Advanced Manufacturing Conference. Following her comments, she read and signed a proclamation declaring October 2 as Manufacturing Day in Iowa. The first Friday of October is the annual celebration of Manufacturing Day across the country. Manufacturers host events for students, educators, parents and others to demonstrate the benefits of working in the manufacturing industry. Many events will be held virtually this year. The National Association of Manufacturers, a national partner of ABI, has a MFG Day website with information about events, stories, resources and more that members can utilize. ABI would like to thank the governor for signing the proclamation and for her continued leadership and support of the business community.
