Manufacturers to tour Aagard Group in March

Tri-State Manufacturers' Association will host a general meeting on Tuesday, March 6 at the Holiday Inn, Alexandria.

Participants are scheduled to tour Aagard Group LLC at 4:00 PM.

Aagard Group has experienced exponential growth and nation-wide success with designing, engineering and manufacturing automated packaging machinery.

Aagard proudly maintains a culture that fosters creative thought and collaboration.

Following the tour, participants will have time to socialize and network at the Holiday Inn. Dinner will be served at 5:45 p.m.

After dinner, the TSMA board of directors will explore a new method of gathering information from the membership about what members "want" from Tri-State Manufacturers' Association: attendees will participate in interactive Roundtable Discussions.

The Roundtable Discussions will provide an opportunity for members to interact and influence the role of TSMA on topics ranging from: government relations activities and information sharing, membership benefits/

the value of membership, programs and special events, to workforce development/youth involvement.

Tri-State Manufacturers' Association (TSMA) is a membership-based organization serving manufacturers and related industries in west central Minnesota and eastern North and South Dakota.

TSMA's 214 members benefit from peer networking, low cost training, plant tours, benefit programs, promotional opportunities, and more.
