2016 Member Emeritus Awards

12/8/2016

WOTM awarded four of the founding members with lifetime membership emeritus awards.

In 2002 it became apparent that local support for manufacturing was very lacking.  Local organizations had a national focus but a regional champion did not exist.  Three dynamic women pooled their forces and resources to fund the startup of a regionally focused non-profit. They gathered a core of like-minded women in manufacturing to flesh out the details.  One of the husband’s (business partners) insisted that ‘Women” be included in the title of this new organization because as he put it “women get it done!”   As a result Women of Today’s Manufacturing was born.
