DRMA will be having an in-person meet up with Rodney Creech at Henny Penny on July 23, from 8 to 9 a.m. If you haven’t signed up and are interested, please click here. Free and for members only.
Looking further ahead, save the date for our meet and greet with Rep. Warren Davidson at the Engineer’s Club in Dayton on August 12. More details to come.
DRMA continues to advocate for our members in conjunction with other organizations who support the same goals. Here is what some of our advocacy partners have been up to:
Our partners NAM and CPA continue to address supply chain concerns. They both are looking to conduct internal research on the root cause of the shortages, higher inflation rates and how best to assist the manufacturer's needs for imports.
OMA continues to be a great partner in addressing the concerns of manufacturers. Top concerns include marijuana and EHS in the workplace, workforce attraction and shoring up voting laws and integrity to provide easy voting access for all Ohioans.
DACC looks to assist manufacturers with addressing childcare needs for employees looking to return to work, logistics and transportation concerns of the supply chain, and tax reforms to allow manufacturers to operate business more competitively.
