“Manufacturing is about people, and that is just as true on the shop floor as it is in our associations and advocacy work. We’re dedicated to helping all of our CMA members identify best practices and learn from each other. Celebrating the best of the best helps all of us succeed.”
FAIRFAX, Va. (PRWEB) June 13, 2018
The Irrigation Association is pleased to announce that it has been named a “2018 Best Manufacturing Association to Work for” by the National Association of Manufacturers’ Council of Manufacturing Associations. The IA received this award based on its workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, along with a measurement of the employee experience.
“I am thrilled that the IA received this prestigious honor,” IA CEO Deborah M. Hamlin, CAE, FASAE, said. “The true recognition goes to our staff members, who not only work tirelessly to achieve our mission, but also have fun while doing it.”
In its inaugural year, this program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers among manufacturing associations, including those benefiting the industry’s economy, workforce and businesses. The IA was one of 10 national manufacturing associations recognized in 2018.
“The NAM is proud to recognize and congratulate these outstanding associations for building exemplary work environments,” NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons said. “Manufacturing is about people, and that is just as true on the shop floor as it is in our associations and advocacy work. We’re dedicated to helping all of our CMA members identify best practices and learn from each other. Celebrating the best of the best helps all of us succeed.”
The IA, along with the other winners, will be recognized in August 2018 during the CMA Summer Leadership Conference in Chicago.
