Our president Lew Ebert recently sat down to share with the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) just why manufacturing matters in North Carolina and what the NC Chamber is doing to foster continued growth and innovation in this key industry. In the March edition of their Member Focuspublication, NAM featured the North Carolina Chamber in their State Association Group (SAG) Profile.

On May 1, NAM President Jay Timmons will join us at our annual Manufacturing Summit to discuss this, among other critical manufacturing issues.
