Take time to connect with your friends from TDMAW! It's so important, but these days with business of work & the technology available to us, sometimes we forget to make time to get together, relax and be social.
TDMAW members, member employees, sponsors, partners and significant others are invited to this casual TDMAW September Social at Old Town Beer Hall in Germantown. Come reminisce with old friends and make a few new ones.
6:00 PM - Relaxing and networking in the beer garden or at the bar

Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is Oct 5, 2018.
While Manufacturing Day is officially Oct. 5, companies and community organizations should plan their events on the date in October that works best for them. Whatever date you choose, please join the National Association of Manufacturers, the Manufacturing Institute, and thousands of manufacturers across the country this year to open up the minds of the next generation — and to open doors to great career opportunities!
Robotic Automation: Your Path to Survival
Maintaining the status quo is not an option for manufacturers who struggle to secure quality labor. Join us to learn how robotic systems enable manufacturers to deliver higher quality parts and maximize throughput, all while keeping their workforce numbers consistent and employees safe.

TDMAW Members, Partners & Sponsors are invited to Alioto's Restaurant for dinner and presentation by Keynote Speaker, back by popular demand, Historian John Gurda. John will present: Milwaukee: A City Built on Water. Learn about Milwaukee's use and abuse of Lake Michigan and the rivers that feed into it.
Telling tales of brewers, brickmakers, ecologists, and engineers, Gurda explores the city’s complicated connection with its most precious resource and greatest challenge. You’ll meet the generations of people, from a Potawatomi chief to fur traders and fishermen, who settled on the small spit of land known as Jones Island; learn how Milwaukee’s unique water composition creates its distinct cream-colored bricks; visit Wisconsin’s first waterparks; and see how city leaders transformed the Milwaukee River—once described as a “vast sewer” with an “odorous tide”—into today’s lively and lovely Riverwalk.
