From the President
The Appalachian region is poised to become a world energy leader. Beyond energy, the long-term opportunities for downstream manufacturing provide a clear path forward for sustained economic growth and job creation.
The 2019 Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference explores our country’s energy priorities, the need for public education related to energy and manufacturing industries and the vision for regional manufacturing. We also are looking at opportunities beyond shale and taking an in-depth look at why our region is an ideal place to invest in the diversification of our energy and manufacturing economies. We’ll share best management practices, discuss investment needs, hear about progress on the Appalachian Storage Hub and more.
We appreciate the value you place on the educational and networking opportunities presented by the 2019 MMDC. We are grateful for the support of our sponsors and exhibitors and hope you’ll take the time to visit exhibits and learn about the services and products offered. Thank you for joining us today.
Rebecca R. McPhail, President
West Virginia Manufacturers Association
