FAO: Manufacturing Associations

We’re working with the National Association of Manufacturers on a quarterly webcast series with the NAM’s chief economist, Dr Chad Moutray. Our role is to monitor the internal chat and integrate the discussion with Twitter. We hosted the first webcast yesterday; here’s a sample of the Twitter conversation. We’re looking forward to the next ones; if you’re a NAM member, register here.  If you’re not a NAM member, join the NAM, and follow the #NAMShopTalk hashtag on April 11!
