Founded in 1895, the NAM, guided by its Executive Committee, is the largest industrial trade association in the United States with more than 14,000 members and is the nation’s most influential advocate for manufacturing.

The NAM is at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers. Executives on the NAM Executive Committee, which comprises leaders representing companies of all sizes in every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s advocacy efforts.

“I am excited for the opportunity to represent manufactures in the Southeast on the many issues facing our industry daily in Washington.  There are tremendous opportunities in Washington to advance policies on trade, taxation, and regulation that could greatly enhance our ability to compete and thrive in the world economy.”  Said Marc Skalla.

“In addition to serving as the Southeast Regional Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, Marc will be a valuable addition to the NAM Executive Committee and will continue to act as a champion for manufacturing,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “As a leader in the business community and for the NAM, he has proven time and again that he is critical to the new era in manufacturing, setting the manufacturing agenda and driving pro-growth policies.”
