"We invite the business community to meet our faculty, staff and students, and talk about their businesses challenges and goals at our Nov. 12 open house. It will be a great opportunity to observe our center in action."
The CAMLS meeting will include a keynote address by Bob McCullough, H-E-B senior vice president of manufacturing ("H-E-B's Lean Journey") and a keynote address by Bruce Miller, president and CEO of Port San Antonio ("Port San Antonio's Growth and Manufacturing Tenants").
