This year, NCATC’s Fall Conference is in partnership with FMA as both groups have parallel missions: to energize individuals for the industry and support institutions that provide the training. The conference will be a unique opportunity for leaders and decision-makers in education and industry to share ideas on recruiting, motivating, training, and retaining a skilled workforce.

The NCATC / FMA 2016 Fall Conference will be hosted by Harper College in Palatine, Ill. Inspiring speakers and informative tours will showcase the broad range of programs that Harper offers, including Metal Fabrication, Manufacturing Technology, and Health Sciences. Highlights include an opening keynote from Dr. Kenneth Ender, president of Harper College, a keynote and multimedia presentation from Jeremy Bout, host and executive producer of Edge Factor, and your choice of enlightening industry tours.

This jam-packed conference offers a wide mix of presentations, roundtable discussions, college and industry tours, and well as various networking opportunities. Programs will be held at both Harper College and the Hyatt Regency in Schaumburg, Ill. Attending this conference will allow you to compare challenges, gain new insights, and find solutions for your training needs.
