Thank you to all our partners and attendees who made Manufacturing Matters such a notable event. It was held on January 25, 2017 at ICOSA Event Center. Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne officially proclaimed the date as "Dream It Do It Colorado Day" in honor of the Dream It Do It Colorado statewide manufacturing coalition. Partners included Colorado Community College System, Colorado Workforce Development Council, Manufacturer's Edge and Women in Manufacturing.

Manufacturing Matters also marked the first event in our Author's Series. Alvaro E. Espinosa, co-author of Fixing What Already Works: How to Make Good Organizations Great, spoke about how principles he learned in manufacturing can be applied to any operation to improve business.  Dream It Do It Colorado (DIDICO) will hold another event this year and be involved with the Manufacturing Day initiative.
