The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance recently named Kevin Montgomery as its membership coordinator. The position is new as the organization launches a membership campaign to boost its economic development efforts across the state.
A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Montgomery is a native of the state and brings a wealth of experience to the new position. “We are excited to have Kevin’s talents and abilities leading this effort,” said Dave Rowland, president of the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance. “His skills will ensure a successful implementation as we broaden our scope in 2017.”
The new membership program offers a chance for both manufacturers and non-manufacturing companies to support the organization’s economic development mission—creating a vibrant, sophisticated industry sector. All memberships include the Knowledge Package where the Manufacturing Alliance aggregates, sorts and classifies articles, videos, blogs, podcasts and whitepapers produced by experts. It is made available to members to help them stay abreast of current information, trends and news for their specific industry. Also, all organizations are promoted as members of the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance through its website, social media outlets and recognition throughout the year at special events.
“Traditionally we have not been a membership organization, but we are hoping this new platform will allow us to expand our reach and develop programs that better promote advanced manufacturing philosophies.” Montgomery said. “When you join the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance as a member, you are at the forefront of an economic transformation pushing our state forward. Together we raise the standard of living in communities across our state.”
The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance is a private, non-profit organization focusing solely on the most powerful economic driver of the global economy—manufacturing.
