Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will kick off the 2017 Manufacturing Summit in Washington, D.C.

The event, schedule June 20-21, is presented by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and provides an opportunity for U.S. manufacturers of all sizes to “bring their shop floors to the nation’s capital and to meet with members of Congress and the administration to advance the policies critical to a robust manufacturing economy,” the organization stated in a press release.

“This is manufacturing’s moment, and together we can advance solutions and make major reforms that will help make manufacturers more competitive for decades to come,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “With the strong partnership of the NAM, the Trump administration and congressional leadership are leading on key manufacturing priorities including pro-growth tax reform, regulatory reform and investment in our nation’s infrastructure.”

Timmons said optimism is “high among manufacturers as Congress and the administration move closer to fulfilling the manufacturing agenda, and we are honored to host the Vice President, the Speaker and the House Majority Leader as well as officials from the Trump administration to discuss ways to continue to grow the manufacturing economy and to share perspectives directly from the shop floor.”

The Summit will be held at the Grand Hyatt Washington D.C. facility. Shonzia Thompson and Candice D. Austin are points of contact for any manufacturers hoping to attend. Link here for more details
