Staff Leadership

At the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), policymaking begins and ends with our members. This structure is built around an elected chairman serving a two-year term, an executive committee, a board of directors, five policy committees and professional staff. Policy committees address issues and recommend policy to the board. The active participation of small and medium manufacturers (SMMs) helps ensure that adopted policies address the needs of all NAM members.
