The Manufacturing Industrial Council is constantly working on programs that will benefit all Industrial Businesses and improve transportation issues in the Duwamish M&I center. We are currently working on the following programs:

growSeattle Program - A proactive program to retain and strengthen Seattle's Industrial Community. The program was designed by industrial business managers and owners. The goal of Seattle First is to provide practical problem-solving services for industrial businesses facing challenges with governmental regulations or relocations.

Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC) - There is a shortage of skilled workers in the aerospace industry and as more workers retire the trend is growing. In order to address this issue, in 2008, 3 million dollars was put into the Washington State budget to develop training programs to instruct workers in the aerospace industry. AJAC was born out of this initiative to manage and facilitate the development and growth of the aerospace apprenticeship programs. The AJAC committee is comprised of industry employers, employees, and the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers (IAM). The training programs will be in the form of the Washington State aerospace apprenticeship programs.

Education Partnerships - A partnership between education, business and labor to develop and implement a statewide green industrial technology curriculum.

Job Training Programs - King County, South Seattle Community College and the Puget Sound Industrial Excellence Center partner with the MIC to operate a job training and exposure programs.
