The Manufacturers Resource Center of the Lehigh Valley is celebrating the graduation of its Manufacturing Leadership Institute Class of 2022.
Rich Hobbs, president & CEO of the MRC, presented each graduate with a Certificate of Graduation. This MLI Class of 2022 has 22 members employed by all sized manufacturers located in Berks, Lehigh, Northampton, Schuylkill, and Luzerne counties.
“We created the Institute in 2006 in partnership with Lehigh University to develop and enhance the leadership skills of our region’s current and emerging leaders,” Hobbs said. “Testimonials from participants are transformational, prompting manufacturers to continue to invest in their management through MLI. It continues to be a valuable experience for everyone and creates lasting business relationships over the five months of the course and beyond.”
