In the past year, all of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Safety, Education, Human Resources and the Executive Roundtable have supported our membership by working on issues important to manufacturers, sharing best practices among them and educating members about available resources. Also, the Quality SIG is being revamped to better serve our members.
