Mold manufacturers throughout the Midwest region of the country are invited to attend the American Mold Builders Association (AMBA) Chicago Chapter's first annual Supplier Night Fundraiser & Dinner Meeting on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at Medinah Banquets in Addison, IL.

The purpose of this special event is to support Chicago AMBA Education Committee's continuing efforts to promote mold manufacturing as a viable career. Specifically, all proceeds raised from this event will be used to host a symposium in the fall of 2015 where teachers, counselors, parents and students can learn about mold manufacturing careers and opportunities. [On that note, take a peek at our MoldMaking Matters: Your Career Can Make a Difference video recruitment tool produced by Creative Technology of which the AMBA was a sponsor.]

Equally important is the opportunity to bring major supplier companies together with their customers to network and display the latest products and services for molding and mold building in an intimate setting. To date, 28 mold industry suppliers have been confirmed as exhibitors! The program will start at 4pm with supplier booths, networking, open bar and door prize raffle for mold manufacturers and their employees. At 6:30pm  the buffet dinner begins and then from 7:30-8:30pm Jim Nelson, VP of External Affairs for the Illinois Manufacturers' Association will speak.

While the Networking portion of the event is free to mold builders and their employees, the Early Bird cost for the full event is $50/person until April 1st. After April 1st the cost per person goes up to $60.00. For more information call 708-227-0373 or email ambachicagochapter@Comcast.net and visit www.MoldYourCareer.org.
