NTMA is actively lobbying Congress and the Administration for policies and regulations that will help the metalworking industry compete globally and secure the workforce it needs for today and the future.
In an effort to strengthen the industry’s presence in Washington, D.C., NTMA joined forces with the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) to create “One Voice” for the metalworking industry. Under One Voice, our Washington, D.C.-based lobbying and strategic communications firms work every day to ensure that the industry’s voice is heard on Capitol Hill and in the media.
One Voice has a combined total of roughly 3,000 member manufacturing companies and is designed to promote U.S. government policies that will ensure a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. The majority of member companies are family-owned small businesses, two-thirds of which are structured as a Sub-Chapter S Corporation or similar pass-through entity, paying taxes at individual rates.
NTMA has achieved many federal lobbying successes in 2022 through its One Voice advocacy team in Washington, D.C.
nts gain practical knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) – all essential skills for manufacturing.
By formalizing ties between schools or youth organizations and manufacturing partners, students gain a better understanding and become enthusiastic about the career possibilities in manufacturing. Also, manufacturers are able to build valuable industry-school connections and workforce talent pipelines by helping competitors engineer a lean, mean, fighting machine. In other words, everybody wins.
