Chamber hears future SMCSI plans

February 19, 2015 —

Last Wednesday night, Southern Michigan Center for Science and Industry hosted the Hudson Chamber of Commerce “After-Hours” event and meeting, one of several the group holds during the year.

Dan Rogers, Program Manager at SMCSI enjoyed showing Chamber members and guests the progress and the new things to come this year, including the High Schools FIRST Robotics program and competition and how the adult lab works with the anytime, any-place, any-pace atmosphere.

Amy Hinkley from Elwood Staffing at SMCSI explained all the details about how you can fill the staffing needs of many employers and helping people get back to work. If you are in the need for good workers or a person looking for work Elwood Staffing can fill that need.

Pam Gosla and Susan Town-Richards from South Central Michigan Works showed off their new office in the building and answering all the questions we had and explained the soft skills training that will be offered at CSI.

Joann Crater and Dave Sheely opened the meeting with updates to the new Chamber website Celebrate Hudson found at www.celebratehudson.com. Ron Rayba added that any Chamber member wishing to be added to the website can do so.

The Concert in the Park series will be happening again with the next one will be sponsored by Southern Michigan Center for Science and Industry and Hudson Area Schools on April 23rd beginning right at 7pm – at the Hudson High School building. That night is parent teacher conferences so that is set to begin right at the end of conferences.

Celebrate Hudson Days are going to be August 6-8 and will combine elements from former Bean Creek Festival and summer entertainment events.
The last thing the chamber was told is thatt “The Way We Worked” exhibit Opening Gala event got off to a great start last Saturday, and will continue through March 29th, 2015.
The night was a nice night and CSI manager Rogers hopes to host another in the near future.
