Smartforce Development Committee

The Smartforce Development Committee establishes policy and direction for AMT that will allow our industry to work with educators to assure that funding and programs are available to sufficiently educate young people in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) so that a consistent flow of qualified, skilled, critical thinking individuals are attracted to seek careers in manufacturing.

To follow the progress of AMT’s efforts to develop a Smartforce for U.S. manufacturing, go to these AMTNews articles.

The Smartforce Student Summit at IMTS 2014 is part of the responsibility of the Smartforce Development Committee. 

Smartforce development is an important component of the AMT Manufacturing Mandate. We are currently seeking AMT members to join the Smartforce Development Committee. Members will have a passion for and experience in implementing best-of-breed education and training programs at their companies and in their communities. For more information about participating, please contact Greg Jones, Vice President - Smartforce Development, at 703-827-5203.
