TCMA Newsletter l September 2020
MISSION STATEMENT
To promote and enhance established local and regional
manufacturing, distribution and other wholesale operations.
WORKFORCE TRAINING GRANTS
Jot it down with Jill!
During the current pandemic, we have heard from local manufacturers of the impacts absent workforce in the workplace has caused to business operations.

Now is a great time for manufacturers to learn about the Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) Grant to cross-train existing employees and alleviate impacts to your manufacturing production and operations.

CLICK BELOW for a brief virtual snapshot on how the IWT Grant can assist you and your business.
"VIRTUAL" READY TO WORK BOOT CAMP
In partnership with TCMA, St. Lucie EDC, Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie and St. Lucie Public Schools, the Virtual Ready to Work Boot Camp was held this summer at the three Boys and Girls Teen Centers in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce. Thank you to our industry partners at A1 Roof Truss, Maverick Boat Group, Indian River Select/GEM Freshco, Radical Cosmetics and Walmart Distribution Center, who hosted students with virtual facility tours and Q&A with company HR and leadership to learn about career pathways in their respective industries.
