Ignite Series for Members

Manufacturers Alliance offers multiple event opportunities, but these sessions focused on interactive discussions between members are particularly valuable in relationship building and sharing ideas.

“Manufacturers Alliance has allowed me access to industry peers that I never would have interacted with before. The environment is friendly and open, offering the opportunity to ask questions and get input from valuable sources outside of my company.”

— Attendee , Compass Minerals International, Inc.

Ignite sessions were created during our in-person meetings many years ago. Topics were collected and then discussed in small groups in the afternoons during larger meetings and conferences. Attendees always ranked these interactive conversations as some of the most valuable time spent at an in-person event. Manufacturers Alliance took these discussions online in a big way at the beginning of 2020, and virtual roundtables are now a staple of our offerings.

These sessions were selected as part of the Ignite Series to facilitate regular conversations among members across functions, and to introduce network members to this invaluable experience that our council members have long enjoyed. What should you expect at the event? You could have 5 or 50 manufacturing peers in the session along with a facilitator to keep the conversation moving. Take advantage of the different perspectives by asking questions and sharing your real life experience with the group. Ready to get started? Find a few topics that interest you and register today.
