Tester announces manufacturing workshop coming to Helena

Senator’s 14th Small Business Opportunity Workshop will be March 7

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester today announced that his latest Small Business Opportunity Workshop will be held in Helena on Friday, March 7.

Tester’s 14th small business workshop will connect national manufacturing industry leaders with Montana businesses to expand economic opportunities and create jobs in the Treasure State.

Tester’s workshop will be held on March 7 at Carroll College’s Campus Center – known as the ‘Cube.’ The event will feature panel presentations from manufacturing industry leaders and local businesses.

“Montana is rich in natural resources, and our manufacturing industry knows how to responsibly use our resources to create the products that America and the world need,” Tester said. “This workshop will highlight the tools that manufacturers need to compete in the 21st Century so we can continue to strengthen our industry and create more jobs here in Montana.”

Tester’s workshop, which begins at 8 a.m., is free and open to the public. Montanans interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at www.tester.senate.gov/rsvp. More information, including speakers and presenters, will be announced soon.

Tester’s Helena workshop builds on the success of his 13 previous small business workshops held across Montana. More than 2,000 Montanans have attended Tester’s workshops.
