    Edited by Constance Thompson 16 days ago

    The National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Leadership Council are committed to being your top resource for information about COVID-19 and manufacturers' response efforts.

     

    Join us this Friday at 1PM EST for a special two hour emergency COVID-19 response call that all manufacturers are welcome to attend.

     

    From 1PM to 2PM, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and  The Manufacturing Leadership Council (MLC) will host the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on an emergency COVID-19 call, to give us the latest manufacturing-specific guidelines from the federal government. Also, we'll host The Hershey Company to discuss the practices their company is implementing to help limit the spread of COVID-19, as well as the next precautions we must take to keep our workers safe and our businesses strong.
     
    From 2PM to 3PM on the same line, join the NAM's Vice President of Infrastructure, Innovation and Human Resources Robyn Boerstling, Vice President of Tax & Domestic Economic Policy Chris Netram, Assistant Vice President of Advocacy Michael O'Brien, and Vice President of Government Relation Jordan Stoick on a special open COVID-19 policy call for members of the NAM's Government Relations Council (GRC). We will discuss the NAM's COVID-19 Policy Action Plan and the latest activity on Capitol Hill and within the administration in response to the coronavirus crisis.
     
    The NAM remains highly engaged with key members of Congress and administration officials on proposals detailed in our expanded COVID-19 Policy Action Plan.
     
    Please click here to RSVP for this call. We'll send over the call-in information shortly.  *If you've already registered, you should have received the updated calendar invite with the full 2-hours.*

    If you're planning on joining this call, we hope you'll also take just a moment to take our quick, two-minute survey, so we can get a pulse on the impact of COVID-19 on manufacturing operations. We'll share the results at the beginning of the call.

    We would like to thank Ecolab for generously allowing us to use their webinar platform for this NAM and MLC hosted COVID-19 webinar series.

    Learn more about the resources they're making available to manufacturers combating the virus at www.ecolab.com.

    Again, the call will take place on Friday, March 20, from 1 to 3 EST. Please RSVP now.

    The National Association of Manufacturers and the NAM's Manufacturing Leadership Council were proud to host a two-hour emergency call for manufacturers on Friday. The response to the call was overwhelmingly positive and the high traffic maxed our system. Sincere apologies to anyone who tried to get in but couldn't after we reach our limit for live attendees, and we hope you will find these recordings valuable.

     

    This called featured remarks by Vice President Mike Pence, the Center for Disease Control providing manufacturing focused guidance, The Hershey Company sharing steps they are taking internally to battle the virus, and the NAM Policy Team reviewing the NAM's COVID-19 Policy Action Plan.

    Following that call, we'd like to provide the following resources:

    •  Recording of CDC presentation, the Vice President, and Hershey's discussion of measures implemented here at their facilities
    • Slides from the call
    • here CDC updated interim guidance for business here

     

    • NAM team reviewed activity on Capitol:

    o   Recording of Policy Team remarks

     

    The transcripts for the CDC and special guest Vice President Mike Pence's remarks will be available shortly.

     

    Please feel free to share these resources with your colleagues and members of your team.

     

    As a reminder, the CDC is addressing specific questions related to COVID-19 through CDC-INFO. If you have questions, you can complete a contact form online at www.cdc.gov/cdc-info/ or call 800-CDC-INFO (800-232-4636).

     

    We have also set up a discussion forum on our MLC site for manufacturers to share ideas and what they are doing to combat the virus.

     

    Please stay tuned for more of these informational calls as we continue to lead the industry in our response to the virus. Please reach out if you have topics you'd like us to cover on future calls.
