The NACE Detroit Section held its 7th Annual Vendor Show at The Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan on Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
This all day event showcased nineteen vendors and was attended by more than ninety attendees. Highlights for the day included presentations by Neil Thompson, president of the NACE Foundation, and U.S. Army Captain Nick Anderson. Captain Anderson spoke on behalf of U.S. military veterans about the difficulties they encounter re-entering civilian life, and in applying their military skills to the civilian workforce. In an effort to address this growing issue, the NACE Detroit Section is working with the NACE Foundation to provide training and mentors to military veterans who will eventually join the corrosion industry workforce. Neil Thompson’s presentation highlighted the NACE Foundation Workforce Development Program for veterans, as well as other programs that benefit the future workforce and leaders in our industry.
