Fueled by the American domestic energy boom, groundbreaking innovation and world-leading productivity, manufacturing in the United States is on the move. In communities nationwide, manufacturers are bringing cutting-edge products to market, they’re inventing new technologies, and they’re transforming the American economy in far-reaching ways. And the growth the sector is driving is helping families move into the middle class, secure stable retirements and ensure their children inherit a future of prosperity, security and opportunity. Now it’s up to all of us—and Washington—to build upon the work of our dreamers, innovators and builders and unleash America’s arsenal of economic growth and job creation.
National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons will discuss the advances in manufacturing, current policy challenges and the manufacturing agenda for leadership.
