Does NTMA have international ties?
NTMA is a US-based organization, with a membership base of American companies, but we have cordial relationships with overseas peers as well as a global understanding of manufacturing as a whole. At the same time, unlike some international industry organizations, our focus is on American economic strength and American jobs.
What is the typical demographic of an NTMA member?
The majority of NTMA members are small- to medium-sized manufacturing companies, many of them privately held and family owned. It is the profitable growth of businesses in this broad category that NTMA is concerned about.
What distinguishes NTMA from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM)?
While similar in goals, the NAM generally represents large, multinational corporations, such as Boeing and Caterpillar, rather than the smaller manufacturing businesses that compose most of NTMA’s membership base.
Are my dues tax-deductible?
NTMA dues are tax-deductible as a business expense, but not as a nonprofit contribution. However, contributions to the National Tooling and Machining Foundation (NTMF) are fully tax-deductible.
