Advocacy at Many Levels for Our Members
With Our Local, State and National Representatives
We Work to Promote Your Business – and Be Your Voice on State and National Legislation
The Manufacturers' Association pursues an aggressive government relations program on behalf of its members, working to protect their interests in Harrisburg, Annapolis and Washington.
We meet with our elected representatives on a regular basis, maintaining an effective personal dialogue with those who can support and promote legislation and actions deemed favorable to businesses in the manufacturing and logistics marketplace

We regularly utilize our regular communications and social media to convey those positions and meeting outcomes with our membership.
We also serve to provide information and data to news organizations looking for information regarding manufacturing jobs and job training, as well providing viewpoints on some of the major local and national issues affecting manufacturing.
With Our State and Regional Partners

Our mission also focuses on creating and fostering positive relationships with our many business and economic partners in our region – such as the SouthCentral Workforce Investment Board, other 'WIB' partners, The World Trade Center Harrisburg, the Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology,
and our regional Economic Development commission authorities.
Our work includes creating new programs and affiliations in conjunction with training consortiums as well as other state and federal training entities.
With the Local Business Marketplace
We're Involved and Connected with Small Businesses
The Manufacturers' Association maintains regular involvement with many of the leading local business chambers in our region. These relationships allow us to network and help promote the benefits and activities of the association to small business owners on a more personal level.
Among several others, Chambers serving the Lebanon, Harrisburg Regional, Lancaster, Waynesboro, Mercersburg, York, Carlisle, Hanover, Gettysburg and Mechanicsburg areas are in contact with us on a regular basis – whether looking to partner on co-marketing efforts with the association, or to have us network at an upcoming function.
