Miller & Martin last month welcomed Miller Center to Chattanooga, its founding city, to discuss the topic of American manufacturing’s future in a program entitled “Made in America...Again.”

The event, held at the Hunter Museum of American Art, featured a discussion of the Miller Center report from the Millstein Commission on six ideas to accelerate the innovative capacity of America’s manufacturing SMEs. Moderated by Mark Berger, attorney at Miller & Martin, the panel was comprised of a group of the commission’s members, including: Jeff Chidester, director of policy programs at Miller Center; Bernie Carlson, Ph.D., chair of engineering at the University of Virginia; and Jennifer Clark, Ph.D., associate professor, School of Public Policy, and director of the Center for Urban Innovation at Georgia Institute of Technology.

In addition, Chattanoogan Dan Frierson, president and CEO of The Dixie Group and long-time Miller Center board member, participated in the panel.

The Center was founded in 1975 by Miller & Martin partner Burkett Miller.

The Miller & Martin Mornings event series provides in-depth discussions around trending topics that present challenges for business leaders.
