The NPASC is composed of public affairs executives from many of America’s leading manufacturers. Members are chosen from across the United States for their recognized leadership in public and government affairs, issue management and political affairs. The professionals on our committee provide valuable insight to the NAM's public policy positions as well as guidance on lobbying strategies.
The NPASC is central to the NAM's member involvement activities. Members work closely with NAM staff on issue advocacy and outreach to other corporate executives and employees. NPASC members are kept abreast of emerging issues and latest developments in Washington and at the NAM.
The NPASC meets two to three times a year. Our fall meeting, usually held in Washington, is a two-day event that features presentations and discussions with key politicos, Members of Congress, NAM staff on current legislative issues. Our spring meeting is held in conjunction with the NAM's Annual Public Affairs Conference, the two-and-a-half day event focuses on professional development, political activity and a thorough review and analysis of legislative issues. A winter meeting is typically centered on a specific issue, (i.e., environmental public affairs) and is generally held outside the beltway.
