But there is much more that local leaders can do. That is why a group of 20+ mayors has launched the “Mayors' Maker Challenge.” Starting May 12th, we seek to recruit a powerful coalition of mayors to take this challenge and become “Maker Mayors.” This Challenge is organized by the Manufacturing Alliance of Communities (MAC), a national coalition of local government officials seeking to promote the growth of U.S. manufacturing and innovation in ways that will boost our communities.
To take the Challenge:
To take the Challenge, simply fill in the short Mayors' Maker Pledge below. The Manufacturing Alliance of Communities will compile all pledges together in mid-June 2014 to produce a report celebrating Maker Mayors including you. We will email you a copy of this report, keep you informed about opportunities and resources that you can pursue to support your manufacturing and maker initiatives, and contact you once more in Fall 2014 to request a short progress report on your Challenge pledge.
