The nearly 350 organizations in the NAM's Allied Organizations represent more than 120,000 employers and nearly 12 million employees. They serve as a vital resource for the NAM and increase the impact of our efforts on behalf of the entire manufacturing community.

Our partners include the Council of Manufacturing Associations, which provides a network to help the nation's various manufacturing associations play a role in the NAM's advocacy efforts; the State Associations Group, which bolsters the NAM's voice through state manufacturers associations, business and industry associations and state chambers of commerce; and the Regional Allies who bring state and regional organizations together to promote our common manufacturing goals.

These groups are an essential component of the NAM's efforts to promote policies that make manufacturers in the United States more competitive.
