McClellan will join the NAM Board to improve the association’s leadership in policy advocacy, workforce solutions, legal action, operational excellence, and news and insights.
“It’s a privilege to serve on the Board of the National Association of Manufacturers and represent the more than 12 million highly dedicated individuals employed in manufacturing,” said McClellan. “Manufacturing has long been a key driver of the U.S. economy, and I look forward to continuing to support the growth and success of this vital industry.”
Founded in 1895, the NAM, guided by its Board of Directors, now has more than 14,000 members. Ninety percent of the NAM’s members are small and medium-sized businesses.
Executives on the NAM Board, which comprises leaders representing companies of every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s efforts, according to the association.
“Steve is a recognized leader in our industry, and the NAM will be stronger thanks to his service on our Board of Directors,” said Jay Timmons, NAM president/CEO. “Manufacturers are the driving force behind our economic recovery. Now that we have secured historic infrastructure investment, we are working with lawmakers to ensure they deliver the long-term policy work on issues like immigration reform, trade expansion, supply chain improvements and workforce development."
