SSMRC staff network with elected officials, contractors, manufacturers at automotive summit

SSMRC leaders networked with elected officials, contractors, and manufacturers at the 2023 Auto Focus Summit hosted by our training center in Charlotte, North Carolina, March 1-2. The Southern States Automotive Contractors Association, an organization the SSMRC was instrumental in creating, held the event.

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein gave a presentation and said he is committed to assisting in the prosecution of contractors who misclassify workers and commit payroll fraud. North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Machelle Sanders also a guest speaker. Both Stein and Sanders toured the Charlotte training center. “They were fascinated with the investment in North Carolina and excited to witness the opportunities their constituents have for great-paying careers and accessible skill training” said SSMRC Eastern Region Director Logan Brown, who attended the event with Charles Smith, business agent for Millwright Local 1263.
