2012 NAM Spring Board Meeting
The NAM and its member companies annually host hundreds of meetings and manufacturing events in Washington and around the country. These meetings provide opportunities for members to connect with their legislators and get detailed information on the latest policy issues related to manufacturing and government. They are a critical component of the NAM’s efforts to create a policy environment that fosters competitiveness, job creation and economic growth.
Our Washington Representative Briefing Series brings NAM members together with legislators and policy influencers to examine the political landscape. Congressional Dialogues connect local manufacturing and government leaders and employees in their company facilities to discuss the issues that directly impact their ability to succeed. The NAM also hosts events with member companies to honor recipients of the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence, which is given to U.S. senators and representatives whose voting records demonstrate a commitment to manufacturing. The Annual Public Affairs Conference focuses on grassroots involvement, best practices, and policy initiatives. And NAM Policy Forums provide in-depth analysis of specific policy issues. Larger association-wide manufacturing events – including the Manufacturing Summit – bring NAM members to meet legislators in Washington D.C.
