If Congressional staff did not know before this morning how high-tech manufacturing is, they do now after attending a briefing with some of the leading American innovators. The NAM joined forces with the BSA | The Software Alliance on Thursday, February 21, to demonstrate to members of Congress, their staff and the media the important role software solutions have in spurring manufacturing technology advances and creating economic opportunity.
Executives from NAM members The Procter & Gamble Company and Microsoft Corporation were among the companies that participated on a panel discussion on why software and other intellectual property must be protected to help drive innovation. Manufacturers of all sizes leverage information technology to design, produce and deliver their products.
Educating Congress and the public on the strong role that manufacturers play in America’s global technology leadership position is a priority for the NAM. We encourage you to share your innovative story with the NAM and help us drive that message.
