PMA Educational Foundation Seeks Partners
Monday, October 03, 2005
The Precision Metalforming Association Educational Foundation (PMAEF), an organization established to educate and motivate the current and future workforce of the metalforming industry, has announced a new way for organizations and individuals affiliated with the industry to support its mission.
PMAEF now offers three levels of partnership for groups that want to show their allegiance to the industry. Companies in or affiliated with the metalforming industry are invited to become Industry Partners; schools and other educational institutions are welcomed as Educational Partners; and individuals and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to become Friends of the Foundation. For a small contribution, these partners will receive recognition, PMAEF affiliation and benefits. More importantly, they will help the industry meet its workforce development challenges.
To learn more about the foundation’s goals and accomplishments as well as its new levels of partnership, contact Anne Cunningham at 216-901-8800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
