Who is eligible for Council membership?
Council membership is open to senior-most leaders in 26 functions for people at manufacturing companies with a large U.S. presence and have $750M or more in revenue. In addition to the events, on-demand content, and research available to all 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.
Who is eligible for Circle membership?
Circle membership is open to mid-to senior level leaders for people at manufacturing companies meeting the Alliance company qualifications. Members have roles in one of six functional areas including: human resources, law, internal audit, tax, treasury, and indirect procurement. Beyond access to a vetted peer network, members have the opportunity to meet in-person and virtually, access industry insights, and receive professional certification credits as applicable.
How much does membership cost?
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.
