Legislative Conference Alert: Registration Deadline is April 1 Register Today!

Have you registered yet for the One Voice Legislative Conference? The deadline is just days away.  This is your chance to help bring common-sense policies for manufacturing to Washington, D.C..   Join your metalworking-industry peers at the sixth-annual NTMA/PMA One Voice Legislative Conference, May 6-7, 2014.

To ensure that there is sufficient time to schedule meetings with your Congressional delegation and staff, registration closes on April 1.   Register online  TODAY by clicking the link or going to www.metalworkingadvocate.org.

Roughly 60 tax credits and provisions expired over the last few months, including some that are used widely by the manufacturing sector such as Section 179 Equipment Expensing and the R&D Tax Credit. At the federal agencies, the EPA, OSHA and NLRB are embarking on an aggressive regulatory agenda with a focus on increased reporting requirements and making data public. Meanwhile, manufacturers around the country continue to face a shortage of skilled workers. Your Senators and Representatives in Washington, D.C. must hear from you on these and other issues important to your business!

Our One Voice Washington team will organize a series of meetings with Members of Congress and/or appropriate staff members on the afternoon of May 6 and the entire day on May 7. As an added bonus, a special luncheon is planned on May 7 where several Members of Congress will be in attendance.

You don’t need to be a policy expert.  Your job is to tell your own story so that the elected representative can learn more about your company and how issues like tax policy, regulations and health care reform impact your business. No one is better at helping them understand your company’s opportunities and challenges than you!

Additionally, there will be a pre-conference webinar on April 24 plus a briefing from our One Voice team on May 6 to prepare you for the meetings.

Also, be sure to make hotel reservations at the Washington Marriott Hotel (1221 22nd Street NW) by April 1. Please call 800-228-9290 and reference the “NTMA/PMA Legislative Conference” to receive our group rate of $239 per night (plus tax), or you may reserve your room online.

We need you to join us – the more people who participate, the stronger our message is!
