IPC President and CEO John Mitchell has been elected to serve on the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Council of Manufacturing Associations (CMA) Board of Directors.
The Council of Manufacturing Associations (CMA) is made up of more than 260 manufacturing trade associations that work together on behalf of manufacturing in the United States. CMA members serve an important role in working with the NAM to unite the manufacturing community, and ultimately the broader business community, on the common goals of strengthening the industry for more jobs, investment and innovation.
“I am honored to serve as a director of the NAM’s Council of Manufacturing Associations and am eager to work with other manufacturing leaders to strengthen the voice for advanced manufacturing in the United States,” said Mitchell. “With a new Administration and Congress, we face new opportunities to work together to shape policies that will help grow the electronics industry and create jobs across many industry sectors, strengthening the overall economy.”
“President Donald Trump and manufacturers across the country need strong partners to bring about the change Americans voted for in November,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “From the first hours of the Trump transition, when the CMA helped us bring more than 1,100 executives together to pledge their best efforts to unite the country, manufacturers have shown they’re ready to work with the new Administration and new Congress and be the solution in moving policies that will realize the promise of manufacturing in the United States.”
The CMA represents every part of manufacturing in the United States and places high value on the community of manufacturing association executives. To learn more about the CMA, click here.
