Cities Adult Education Alliance has coordinated education
fairs for dozens of metro-area companies. Many of them
have made it an annual event. See what some of these
companies had to say about hosting an education fair.
" The TCAEA has been instrumental in assisting us with
the coordination of education fairs at Cargill. They
provide us with a one-stop shop to many valuable resources
for our employees to further their education."
Steve Nguyen, Cargill
" The TCAEA alliance member I worked with helped me with
ideas for publicizing our education fair for employees
and their families. They encouraged me to use e-mail
and posters and talked about what was effective as
far as timing. With the alliance's help, we saw a significant
increase in interest and attendance at our fair this
year compared to last year."
Irv Aslakson, Federal Aviation Administration
" 3M was very pleased to have the schools of the Twin Cities Adult Education Alliance visit for an education fair in 2006. We received such positive feedback from both employees and the schools involved that we plan to repeat the event at least every other year. Working with the TCAEA made organizing the fair very easy for us and we greatly appreciate the enthusiasm and hard work of the TCAEA coordinators and the school representatives."
Chris Jacobs, 3M
“ When we were contacted by the TCAEA about hosting an education fair we thought it'd be a great opportunity to help our employees continue their education and advertise our tuition reimbursement program. Employees who attended were energized about getting back to school and expressed appreciation for the extra interest we showed in their development. We look forward to making this an annual event.”
Kim Meissner, Ingersoll Rand Climate Control Technologies
“Wells Fargo is committed to helping our team members develop their skills to their fullest potential, particularly by encouraging further education with our tuition reimbursement program. TCAEA has assisted with four Wells Fargo college expos over the past two years and provided terrific support. TCAEA is very organized and responsive in meeting our needs to provide useful resources for our team members.”
