The Manufacturing Industrial Council of Seattle (MIC)

Your advocate in the industrial community

The Manufacturing Industrial Council was formed in 1998 by a handful of volunteers concerned about the future of Seattle's industrial business community. Today the group includes many members - some big, some small - all sharing a commitment to retain and support the family wage job base of the city.

The MIC and its partner group, the Duwamish Transportation Management Association, are proactively engaged with local, regional and state decision makers to get the best outcome possible involving government policies and practices that impact industrial firms.

As part of its role as an advocate for businesses, the MIC is the publisher of Seattle Industry Magazine and Seattle Industry Online. The voice you hear throughout these publications is our Executive Director, Dave Gering.

To meet our member's needs for the upcoming worker shortage we are actively engaged in several Workforce-Education Initiatives. Our goal is to engage more people at a younger age in career paths for industrial professions through work-based learning experiences linked to "next step" connections to education and training programs.

If you have any questions please call Dave Gering, Executive Director, at (206)762-2470.
