Official Policy Positions

This website contains the official policy views of the National Association of Manufacturers. These policies are the result of research, discussions and conclusions of 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.

All policies are reviewed periodically by the Subcommittees responsible for them to determine their currency in the light of new issues and challenges.
