I don’t know what membership option is right for me. How do I decide?
We have two distinct paths for membership, and we can help you figure out what is the best fit for you.
- Council membership is open to senior-most leaders in 22 functions for people at mid- to large Cap companies. In addition to the benefits of Network members, our Councils are closed-door groups of peers who dive into the issues that matter most to them. Members meet in-person and virtually to connect, hear from experts, and get on-demand benchmarking support from our research team.
- Network membership is open to our Council members’ direct reports as well as mid-to-senior level leaders working in manufacturing companies not eligible for council membership. This membership is best suited for someone in a corporate function versus on the factory floor. Network membership connects you to other people in manufacturing in various ways, including a 24/7 online community, where you can ask questions and get input from others in the industry. It also includes free access to our educational virtual conference and virtual roundtable conversations on hot topics, discounted member pricing to our in-person conferences, access to a variety of member-only research, and much more.
How much does membership cost?
Network and Council membership fees vary based on the number of executives who participate in your company. Our membership team can let you know the exact figures for you. Apply and someone will be in touch shortly.
Are your dues tax-deductible?
As each tax situation is unique to the person or company, we recommend checking with your accountant. Membership dues contribute to Manufacturers Alliance, a 501(c)(6) organization.
I don’t work for a manufacturer, but I work in the industry. Can I be part of the Manufacturers Alliance?
Membership is only available to those working directly in manufacturing. However, we have many partnership options for analysts, consultants, and vendors who add value to the sector. Many of our partnership opportunities are part of the Manufacturers Alliance Foundation, our 501(c)(3) sister organization, and are likely tax-deductible (check with your accountant).
We would love to hear from you.
Does Manufacturers Alliance lobby?
No. Manufacturers Alliance is a nonpartisan organization and does not contribute funding to any lobbying efforts.
What if I have competitors on my Council or in the Network?
Manufacturers Alliance takes antitrust very seriously. Please see our Antitrust Policy for more details.
As a member, you will notice that each meeting begins with a reminder of our Antitrust Policy. If someone hears or sees something they believe will violate this policy, a staff member will step in to stop or redirect the conversation. We also encourage our members to do the same.
I’m new at my company or in a new role. I understand my company is part of Manufacturers Alliance. How can I get involved?
