Advisory Committee

In 2021, MassMEP established an industry advisory committee to provide independent, professional expertise and technical assistance on the development and effectiveness of the strategies that will help shape a resilient future for manufacturing in Massachusetts. Learn more about our Advisory Committee and their role below.

Focused on key initiatives, such as, steering the Commonwealth's workforce into new employment opportunities and emerging markets, including clean energy, and other sectors driven by advanced technologies, while guiding the development of high-quality training and education pathways.

The committee's primary role is to voice the needs of SMEs; to shed light on the issues that affect the industry most. MassMEP will advocate for solutions, working alongside our partners, legislators and state administration to address regulatory, legislative and policy obstacles. The committee will have access to a network of peers for sustained collaboration and a developing system of best practices.

MassMEP will rely on the advice and guidance of the committee to inform our work as we rebuild the economy with industry partners, higher education, trade groups, business organizations, and various quasi-government agencies.
