The IMA Board of Directors heard from Gloria Sachdev, CEO of the Employers’ Forum of Indiana, regarding the Rand 2.0 study on hospital costs. Indiana ranks the highest in relative price for hospital care among all 25 states included in the study. The IMA is forming a committee to study the issue in hopes of passing legislation that will reduce costs for Indiana businesses and consumers.
The Indiana Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (INFAME) held its latest event at Steel Dynamics Inc., in Fort Wayne, on July 12. The event attracted area business leaders and educators to learn more about the Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) Program and how companies can work with other area manufacturers to open a local chapter and help build a pipeline of available workers for the manufacturing industry.
