Portland Chapter - Oregon Senator Betsy Johnson

05:30 PM - 08:00 PM


Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center


Thursday, September 14th at 5:30 pm

Crowne Plaza Portland Downtown

1441 NE 2nd Ave, Portland, OR 97232


We invite you to join us in learning about the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center located in Scappoose, Oregon. Its model is the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing in Sheffield England, an academic, industrial, governmental collaborative project which in 12 short years has created phenomenal wealth and jobs.  Its research has drawn high value manufacturing companies and its training center makes mechanical engineers out of 16 and 17 year olds who then move into high paying jobs with the companies who sponsor them.  Following the AMRC model, our Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center partners are the State of Oregon, local government, Portland Community College, Oregon Tech, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Organized Labor, Boeing, Vigor and other prominent industry partners. 

OMIC links innovation with workforce development, ensuring that innovation is applied in the marketplace and

workers are trained and placed directly into quality jobs.


Although Boeing has now modeled 14 of these institutions around the globe, OMIC is the only institution in North America.  Learn the benefits to your company, your community and your family from Senator Betsy Johnson and Keith Chapman, Special Assistant to the Executive Vice President of Fabrication at Vigor and OMIC R&D Board Member.


We will also be honoring our longtime members with service awards!
