Legislative Conference

During the 2016 elections, presidential candidate Donald Trump put a spotlight on manufacturing. In the 2020 White House race, manufacturing is certain to take center stage once again, making it critical that we have our voices heard. On September 22-23, 2020, NTMA and PMA will host members in Washington, D.C., scheduling meetings with senators, representatives and key policymakers.

During this 12th annual Washington fly-in, PMA and NTMA will seek to build on prior victories, bringing attention to and securing resources for apprenticeships and job training. Closing the skills gap and raising awareness of manufacturing careers is our top priority, and visiting D.C. in the middle of the most consequential election in decades gives you an opportunity to make sure politicians are focusing on manufacturing in America. Attendees also will have the opportunity to discuss the impact of tariffs, taxes and regulations on their businesses.

One Voice will schedule all of your meetings in advance, freeing you up to speak to policymakers about what you know best – your business. Join your fellow NTMA and PMA members in Washington, D.C. to speak with One Voice!
