The York Plan made national news in World War II - an example of how one community came together to support the war effort. Instead of competing separately for defense contracts, businesses came together to share lists of manpower and machinery to compete for major defense contracts. This presentation - The York Plan: York County Contributes to Winning WWII - will explore how this plan developed and lessons that the York Plan offers for businesses today.
