   On behalf of RIMA, I would like to thank our sponsors, advertisers and all who attended our RI Manufacturing Renaissance event in October.  It was an evening of tremendous conversation and great fun. During the night we had a chance to recognize the terrific work of Beth and Kevin Cunha at the Center for Dynamic Learning in Providence; Briar Dacier from Davies Career & Tech High School in Lincoln; and, the founding members of the Manufacturing Skills Initiative for RI. The work being done to encourage our youth to explore careers in manufacturing is absolutely wonderful.
