Manufacturers across Oklahoma are scrambling to find out how their manufacturing businesses can benefit from the national and international wind industry supply chain. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to find out how (or if) your Oklahoma manufacturing business can benefit from the emerging wind industry.

Registration is $95 per person before Monday, March 22 and $105 per person after that. Credit cards and advance payment are preferred.

The workshop features Ed Weston, Director of the Great Lakes Wind Network (GLWN), and members of the GLWN WIND Team.
