Coming Up, the 2010 Manufacturing Summit

By April 13, 2010Economy, General

The National Association of Manufacturers’ 2010 Manufacturing Summit gets under way at noon tomorrow, and we’re pleased to report that Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag will speak to the group of 350-plus manufacturers at our Thursday lunch event.

Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) is the breakfast speaker that morning.

The summit brings leaders of manufacturing companies from all around the country to Washington, primarily for the purpose of talking to their members of Congress about federal policies that allow manufacturers in the United States to compete in the global economy.

In planning for the fly-in, the NAM identified three major issues that our members wanted to talk about: labor policy, taxes and jobs creation, but manufacturers have plenty of concerns they are not shy about sharing.

We’ll be blogging the speeches here at Shopfloor.org, and we hope to have a flurry of Tweeting at the NAM’s Twitter feed, @Shopfloor_NAM. The hashtag identifier for the event is #mfgsmt.
