    Our guest speaker is Dr. Kim Moore (http://www.kimdmoore.com), who will be speaking on the topic of "Diversity and Inclusion in STEM Education." The demographics of the workforce in STEM fields have remained largely unchanged for more than a decade. Targeting overlooked talent in schools, this presentation will examine the most recent research and best practices in creating diverse and inclusive STEM communities in secondary education. A robotics demonstration will be conducted by Middleton High School robotics club students, winners of the 2012 World FTC Robotics Championship and 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Florida State FTC Robotics Championships!

    Middleton's Electrathon Car, powered only by commercial rechargeable batteries weighing no more than 73 pounds, designed and built by students will be on display.

    This STEM event will take place at Middleton High School, 4801 North 22nd Street, Tampa, FL 33610 in the Media Center, located on the second floor of Administration Building 100. Guests are encouraged to bring their family members to join us for this awesome Science, Technology, Engineering and Math event!

    This event is sponsored by the Bay Area Manufacturers Association and Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
    Thank you sponsors!

    • Bascom's Chop House, 3665 Ulmerton Rd., Clearwater, FL 33762

    Work Comp study of options to help your business


    Lunch n Learn
    Friday, April 14
    Location: Bascom's Chop House, Clearwater

    If the Florida Legislature cannot agree on recent workers' comp rulings, premiums could increase more in 2018.

    At this lunch n learn, you will find solutions to help rollback the 14.5 percent workers' comp premium increase. A forensic study of options from deductibles to dividends to experience mod. analysis.

    About your speaker:

    Kevin Campbell, CEO of Work Comp Specialists, has exclusively managed Workers' Comp programs of employers throughout Florida for 26 years. He has seen marketplace cycles fluctuate from 38 percent increases in rates downward to 60 percent lower rates.

    He now predicts we are at the beginning of a three-year cycle of premiums increasing a collective 35 percent.

    Now is the time to pivot and learn current tools to prevent some of this painful increase in costs.

    His intelligence report will fully explain the use of deductibles, coinsurance, deferred dividends and insurance bidding methods. These options will prevent much of this 14.5 percent current rate increase.

    An author of two books specializing in Workers' Comp, Campbell will explain his role on the Florida Chamber Work Comp Task Force heading into this legislative session.

    This will be an interesting lunch and learn... not a sales event.

    BAMA is proud to announce its 26th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament. Since 1992, more than $150,000 has been awarded in scholarships for continuing education at the college level, as well as vocational training for hands-on skilled jobs.

    The scholarship funds are distributed through the Education Foundations of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. We also support local high school robotics teams, STEM summer camps and Manufacturing Day student tours.

    By supporting education that benefits domestic manufacturers, BAMA is making a difference in our local economy. Investing in manufacturing education will keep jobs and manufacturing growing in Tampa Bay.

    Our annual golf tournament is not only fun, but this year, we'll have some bigger and better prizes! It's a win/win - students and golfer alike!
