MMA is dedicated to serving the needs of manufacturers across the state. Our educational programs and services are focused on helping members stay ahead of the curve of industry trends, regulatory requirements and legislative initiatives.

The legal challenges of manufacturing are a rapidly changing landscape. Keeping up with emerging issues such as autonomous vehicles, intellectual property protection, cyber security and NAFTA all require expertise and experience. The MFG Law Summit on 2/22/18 in Dearborn will provide you guidance and some answers to these emerging legal areas.

Collaborating with the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), MMA will once again deliver a loaded line-up of global manufacturers, small businesses and national experts on 5/9/18 in Novi to guide industry leaders through emerging issues like Industry 4.0 (and why it matters to their long-term bottom line) and provide resources to maintain Michigan’s manufacturing advantage in the 21st century.

A two-event, power-packed day featuring MMA Lobby Day and the MMA Legislative Reception. Go behind the scenes at the Capitol during Lobby Day to learn how to advocate for your business and then put those skills in practice at the Reception as you meet your elected representatives and government officials in a casual, friendly atmosphere.

The 2017 Legislative Day was held 9/12/17 in Lansing. Planning for 2018 is underway.

National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is a great opportunity to inform your community and increase your exposure! Over the past several years this program has grown exponentially to host facility tours all across the country.
