Recruitment Talking Points
There are approximately 240 organizations among the NAM's Council of Manufacturing
Associations (CMA) representing almost every manufacturing industry sector.
Member Associations range from very small niche organizations to some of the largest
manufacturing trade associations in the US.
Along with the ability to be involved in policy and advocacy activities that involve your
manufacturing members, you are also connected to a large network of peers.
