This website contains the official manufacturing policy of the National Association of Manufacturers effective March 7, 2008. They supersede all previous compilations. These policies are the result of research, discussions and conclusions regarding the manufacturing industry issues facing member companies of all sizes and types. Approved by the NAM Board of Directors, these positions have been vetted by task forces, subcommittees and committees prior to recommendations for action by the board. This policy-making structure and process ensures that the views expressed by the Association are the most reflective and representative views of a broad cross section of the leaders of the manufacturing economy. Each manufacturing policy is reviewed periodically by the Subcommittees responsible for them to determine their currency in the light of new manufacturing industry issues and challenges.
