    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. 
     
    BAMA is excited to have Steve "The Predator" Monroe as our long-drive hitter this year. Steve broke the record with a 467-yard drive in the Colorado Mile High Shoot Out and has established himself as one of the nation’s best Long Drive Champions. He finished in the top 10 in the 2007 ReMax Long Drive Championship in Mesquite, Nevada.

    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!

    Location: Rusty Pelican, Tampa, FL

    Agenda:

    Roundtable Facilitator:
    Jim Long - Vice President & General Manager Sypris Electronics

    How do you know you have a good quality management system?
    The purpose of this Roundtable event is to examine this critical manufacturing business process – both for companies with mature Quality Management Systems (QMS) as well as manufacturing companies that want to build, expand or overhaul their current system.

    Participants will be exposed to QMS fundamentals as well as lessons learned and best practices from BAMA members. Our manufacturing roundtables are designed to be interactive and this event will provide an opportunity to learn from a Quality Management System expert, benchmark with other members and learn ways to help improve the competitiveness of your business.

    These Roundtables are offered to facilitate discussion and determine specific focus areas of interest manufacturing members would like more support from BAMA; to provide a forum to discuss and share best practices within manufacturing members; to provide a forum to learn and provide resources to our membership to improve manufacturing competitiveness.

    The Manufacturers Roundtable is another example of BAMA’s ongoing efforts to expand the strength of Tampa Bay’s manufacturing base.

    Please direct any questions to becky@bama-fl.org.
