AMCC Roadshows

Strengthen American manufacturing in your region by co-hosting an AMCC roadshow visit

As part of AMCC’s collaborative partnership with the U.S. EDA serving as the nation’s manufacturing Community of Practice, we are working to co-create meetings organized together with key regional manufacturing community stakeholders from what could be many types of organizations.

On these trips, AMCC describes many emerging best practices and federal interventions available to regions as well as tactics learned from other regions that can be implemented in regions across the country. More than that, these trips are meant to be a catalyst to strengthening existing and proposed regional public-private consortia initiatives organized to accelerate sustainable development with some kind of manufacturing related theme. As illustrated in the reports on previous roadshow visits below, your region’s meetings will not only help us learn about regional successes and challenges that inform our work, we also hope they help your regional consortia partners be more successful in weaving together regionally relevant federal, state, local, and private interventions that can produce desired outcomes where it makes sense.

AMCC supports regional consortia organized to strengthen manufacturing in any number of public/private initiatives to include federal agency community designation programs like IMCP, DOD’s DMCSP, the EDA’s BBBRC and emerging Tech Hub program.
