A Recap of Last Year’s Gala
At last year’s RMI Maryland Manufacturing Gala, over 600 manufacturing employees and stakeholders came together for an evening celebration to recognize the longest serving employees in Maryland’s manufacturing industry. The evening was highlighted by Governor Hogan’s remarks, recognition of the longest serving employees, Paul Reed Smith’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and local high school students from the Baltimore Robotics Center and First Robotics showcasing their drones and robots giving us a glimpse of Maryland’s future manufacturing innovators. The whole evening was geared towards creating a sense of community among the audience participants and helping the public understand the value of manufacturing and its workers to our communities and our lives.
“Thank you, Mike, Peter and the RMI for continuing to bang that drum when yours was the only instrument in the orchestra. Last evening was a powerful indicator as to how far that resurgence has come, and a powerful indicator of the momentum that will drive the resurgence into the future. Thanks for all that you do to keep manufacturing in the spotlight, and to make the future brighter for all present and future Maryland manufacturers.”
