Last week the NAM joined forces with the National Chamber Foundation and the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation (MAPI) for a discussion on manufacturing and the 12 million men and women who make up its workforce.
NAM members like General Electric’s Jamie Regg, Bison Gear and Engineering Chairman Ron Bullock, and Quality Float Works President and Design Engineer Sandra Westlund-Dennihan talked in depth about the environment for manufacturers today and what they need to succeed and bring in skilled workers.
NAM’s own Aric Newhouse moderated the first panel and helped offer an expert’s view on what’s going on in Washington and the challenges facing our nation today. He pressed policy makers to begin the all-important discussion of comprehensive tax reform now rather than waiting until the end of the year.
Boeing President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg capped off the event with a strong summation of how the U.S. can maintain the mantle of the global manufacturing leader.
