Today, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons was honored as Association TRENDS’ 2016 Association Executive of the Year. Surrounded by friends and family, Timmons was recognized for his work for manufacturers across the United States and around the world.
“This is a tremendous honor,” said Timmons. “When I saw the list of previous honorees, that certainly became quite evident. To be mentioned along with the men and women who I consider giants of our profession, mentors and heroes, colleagues and friends, is unbelievably humbling.”
During the award event, Timmons highlighted the work of associations in his remarks.
“Associations represent the best of American values: collaboration, consensus and coalition-building. We bring people together to lift others up—to move our country forward, to strengthen our industries, to expand opportunity and to give voice to our First Amendment rights.
“Associations have a long history that deserves celebration. Together, we’ve weathered challenging times in our nation’s history.”
Timmons has led the NAM with dedicated leadership and commitment to the association’s forward-looking vision. In 2015, the NAM secured key legislative victories for manufacturers and continued with tireless advocacy for the men and women who make things in our country.
