Response/Recovery (R/R)

Since postponing our 2020 Annual Meeting in early March, CESMII has been active helping the US Manufacturing ecosystem on two fronts:

  1. aiding in the immediate Response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and
  2. working toward the nation’s long-term economic Recovery.

This is important work, no doubt, but it has NOT pulled us away from our pre-COVID plans and objectives. This global pandemic has shined an enormously powerful spotlight on the importance of manufacturing to both the health and welfare of people everywhere and the economic well-being of communities, nations and the world. We’ve always believed these truths. We always will. Our path forward now is to accelerate and scale the work we began long before the days of COVID-19.

We know you’re being inundated with “coronavirus newsletters” and regular communications about the impact of the virus. At CESMII, we’re taking a different approach. Rather than focusing on the virus, we will continue to focus on the Response and the Recovery. We will continue to search for, support and publicize individuals, organizations and manufacturing communities that are responding and leading efforts to provide critical relief today or laying the groundwork for our future. Here are just a few examples:

Please email us ( and help us highlight anyone helping in the COVID-19 Response or the economic Recovery.

It’s important we continue to work together as an ecosystem and support each other in the days and months to come. Stay safe!
