If you have a story about how regulations are affecting your manufacturing business, whether it’s about compliance, costs or unattainable standards, or even if you want to tell NAM about an experience you’ve had with a federal agency, they want to know. Please email your story or experience to Rosario Palmieri at NAM can keep their name and business anonymous if they prefer, and nothing will be used without final approval.
