The La Porte Manufacturers Association consists of many area manufacturers. Jackie Dermody of SevenOKs chairs the association. The Association includes the Michigan City Manufacturers Council in joint meetings. The groups meet several times throughout the year having round-table discussions and hearing from various speakers presenting issues affecting the manufacturing sector.

The Association gives its members the chance to learn about important topics affecting its sector. Whether it be OSHA regulations, healthcare, or human resources, a great deal of information is dispersed to the members of the group. A new focus in particular has been placed on workforce development. For more information about the group, feel free to contact the Chamber at 219.362.3178 or info@lpchamber.com.
