BAC ensured that a member of the Dayton Region Manufacturing Association
(DRMA) was asked to participate on the team. The President of DRMA
has agreed to be on the BAC and attended the February 2019 meeting.
BAC determined that the GCESC would have a webpage dedicated to the work
of the BAC and house information, resources and artifacts of the BAC.
That webpage is available at http://www.greeneesc.org/BusinessAdvisoryCouncil.aspx
- The BAC read articles on both “soft skills” and “college paths or other paths for students” and determined that both should be loaded onto our BAC website. The BAC wants eductors, parents, and students to understand the need for soft-skill development and the need for students to be exposed to many types of careers—those that require college and those that do not. The BAC webpage will be a portal for these types of articles and resources.
- BAC will promote the manufacturing website on its BAC webpage. www.makingohio.com
