Larry Hogan has made a point of addressing the importance of manufacturing during the time since becoming Governor of Maryland. On March 26, he will address hundreds of manufacturers directly for the first time during the Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland’s “Decades of Dedication Gala” at Martin’s West in Baltimore County.
“We are honored to have Governor Hogan participate in our celebration of all that manufacturing does for this community,” said Dr. Mike Galiazzo, President of the Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland (RMI). “I think it’s safe to say that I speak for manufacturers across the state when I say how encouraging it is to see the governor take such a vested interest in what we do.”
The event commemorates RMI’s 25th anniversary, and is themed as a dinner banquet honoring local manufacturing companies’ ongoing contributions to the state, as well as an opportunity for those companies to recognize their longest serving and important employees. The keynote speaker is Gloria Flach, Northrop Grumman’s corporate vice president and president of electronic systems sector.
It will take place from 5:30-9:30PM, with tickets and table registration still available. More than 40 local manufacturing companies have already reserved tables.
