A large portion of ABA’s staff hit the road this past week to engage with partners, tour member facilities, and meet with existing and prospective members at two trade shows. Here’s a look at ABA’s travels.
State of Manufacturing Tour with NAM in Houston, TX
The American Bakers Association partnered with the National Association of Manufacturers State of Manufacturing Tour and their Heroes Make America program to promote the baking industry as both an important vertical in manufacturing and also as a field with dynamic career opportunities. ABA’s Robb MacKie, President and CEO, Kelly Knowles, VP of Political and State Affairs, and Katie Juhl, Director of Marketing and Communications, attended the tour at Bimbo Bakeries in Houston with Craig Pizer of Bimbo, several staff members from the bakery, NAM’s Carolyn Lee, Executive Director of The Manufacturing Institute, along with nine veterans in the Heroes Make America program.
