The NEW Manufacturing Alliance is a group of manufacturers, working with educators, workforce development, chambers of commerce and state organizations to promote manufacturing in our Northeast WI region. The Vision of the Alliance is that every northeast Wisconsin manufacturer will find the talent it needs.
Manufacturing careers offer great wages, advancement opportunities, and the ability to work with the latest technology. Checkout this video that showcases real people from Wisconsin sharing why they enjoy working in manufacturing!
NEWMA hosted its seventh annual Excellence in Manufacturing/K-12 Partnerships Awards Dinner on October 23 at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay. New North manufacturers and educators were honored at the event. A record number of nominations were received this year.
A big thank you to the event sponsors, members, All Stars, award winners, nominees, and volunteers!
Internship Draft Day was held on November 8, 2018 at Lambeau Field! The event hosted a record number of employers, offering students great networking opportunities.
214 students had the opportunity to earn the right to be the #1 draft pick from their school, based on their GPA, networking and interviewing skills. Mark Murphy, President and CEO of the Green Bay Packers, announced all of the #1 draft picks at the conclusion of the event.

Industry and educators united to celebrate an innovative approach to addressing career awareness through the importance of learning math. Pete Petoniak, Fox 11's director of meteorology, emceed the event.
Get Real Math was created five years ago when an educator asked the Alliance how she could answer the question asked by many of her students: “When am I ever going to use this in the real world?" The Alliance’s GRM videos showcase how math is used in the real world. In addition, the videos and lesson plans provide schools a tool to use for academic and career planning (ACP). The videos and lesson plans (written by math teachers) are available at no cost on the NEWMA website.
