Chicago Manufacturing Renaissance Council

Founded in July 2005, CMRC works to bring together regional labor, business, government, education and community leaders to develop “high road” economic development based on the developing of a high-value added manufacturing economy. The group's work has included the development of a public high school, Austin Polytech, which specializes in training its largely African-American student body that will enable students to graduate with industry-recognized credentials that are in demand by area manufacturers.
