Meghan Summers West to Focus on Manufacturing Education in HTEC 2015 Keynote Address

CNC Software's newly appointed president, Meghan Summers West, will be heading to California Polytechnic State University July 27-30, to deliver a keynote address focused on manufacturing. During her presentation at the 2015 National HTEC Conference, West will focus on the need to "Acquaint, Convince and Excite (ACE) the Next Generation of Manufacturing."

"The need for manufacturing jobs over the next few years will be high," West said, "but formal programs that combine on-the-job learning with classroom education is dropping. This creates an obvious skills gap that needs to be addressed."

CNC Software's dedicated educational division will be on hand to provide training and educational presentations during this year's event. The educational division was created to address the current and future needs of the manufacturing industry through a concerted focus on engaging and training tomorrow's manufacturing leaders. By learning Mastercam, students are better prepared to enter the workforce and secure employment in a wide range of industries and roles.
