State Government Relations Group

The National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) State GR Group (SGRG) comprises state-level government relations executives who are responsible for or work on state legislative issues.

The SGRG’s mission is to provide an opportunity for state government relations executives to network and share information on best practices as well as exchange ideas and hear fresh perspectives on state legislative issues and trends.

SGRG’s key strategies include the following:

  • Identify critical emerging issues at the state level that may affect manufacturers nationwide.
  • Advocate on behalf of state-level government relations executives throughout the country to advance their policy interests.
  • Strengthen interaction and understanding between state- and federal-based policy issues.

The SGRG will meet on a quarterly basis. The group will host two meetings in person: our fall meeting will take place in September in Washington, D.C., and our spring meeting will be held in conjunction with the NAM’s Annual Public Affairs Conference. The group will also host two conference calls in Summer and Winter.
