AEM Partners with SkillsUSA To Tackle Manufacturing’s Skills Gap

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has teamed up with SkillsUSA, a partnership of students, teachers and industry representatives to help provide America with a skilled and developed workforce.

The partnership began with AEM and SkillUSA’s mutual respect for each organization’s commitment to be a solution to the skills gap, grow interest in skilled and technical trades, dispel stereotypes, as well as ensure all students are both college and career ready. From there, the collaboration seemed obvious.

“AEM is thrilled to be able to partner with SkillsUSA as part of our ongoing effort to open doors for the association’s members and allow them to gain access to uniquely valuable opportunities to enhance their workforce and help secure a bright future for our industry,” said Julie Davis, AEM director of workforce development.

SkillsUSA provides educational programs, events, and competitions that support career and technical in classrooms across the nation. More than 345,000 students and advisors join SkillsUSA each year, and there are more than 19,000 local chapters across the nation introducing their members to skills that induce career readiness, responsibility, and effectiveness.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers:

AEM Supports Legislation to Improve Our Nation’s Infrastructure

Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) president Dennis Slater issued the following statement on the introduction and unanimous Committee approval of the America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA):
“We applaud the work of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works in introducing a bipartisan surface transportation reauthorization bill and moving that bill through Committee with unanimous approval,” said Dennis Slater, president of AEM. “The America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA) will provide the resources necessary to maintain and improve our nation’s surface transportation assets. That is good for equipment manufacturers and communities across the country. Our industry depends on the strength of our nation’s infrastructure to transport the equipment we make across the country and around the world. That same equipment is also critical in the construction and maintenance of nearly all aspects of our nation’s infrastructure network. While this is a step in the right direction, we will continue to work with members of Congress on both sides of the aisle to secure a comprehensive infrastructure package that provides adequate, sustainable, long-term funding to modernize and improve our nation’s entire infrastructure portfolio.”
S. 2302, The America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA) provides $287 billion over five years, representing a 27 percent increase over FAST act levels. Some other highlights of the bill include codifying the One Federal Decision Executive Order which will reduce regulatory project delays, increased investment in the Technology and Innovation Deployment Program, and expansion of the National Highway Freight Program all of which are among AEM’s infrastructure priorities.
