Health Care Plan

Save up to 30% off what you’re currently paying for health insurance with NAM Health Care Plans!* 

Because the Dayton Region Manufacturers Association is an affiliate member of the National Association of Manufacturers, DRMA manufacturer members with 2- 99 employees now have access to NAM Health Care: a new Association Health Plan that offers you quality health insurance -- at a value previously available only to larger companies! By collaborating with Mercer, we can now offer a fully ACA-compliant plan that leverages the size of the NAM and DRMA, offering your employees health care plans at what may be a more cost-effective price.

An AHP is a health plan offered by a group of employers within an association. NAM Health Care is a bona fide pre-rule AHP and allows our manufacturing companies to band together to manage and purchase coverages typically enjoyed by larger manufacturing companies at a competitive price. NAM Health Care is operated by the plan’s Governing Committee made up of mostly small and medium-sized manufacturers.

Wage & Benefit Survey

Use the survey report to compare your wages and benefits with other regional industry companies.

Learn More About Wage & Benefit Survey


Paying people fairly is good for business. Underpay, and employees will eventually look for a better offer. Overpay, and the payroll budget and profitability will suffer. That's why companies use market data to research the value of their jobs, and that’s exactly what the DRMA Wage & Benefit Survey provides. This survey helps you benchmark the value of your jobs and your benefits plan. Current trends for compensation are covered, as are topics including employee benefits, work schedules, and retention strategies. Non-participating DRMA members may purchase a copy of the report for $200; non-members may purchase a copy for $350. Call the Association office (937-949-4000) or email Shay Knoll to order your copy.

Business Leads

DRMA connects members with business leads from companies who reach out to us seeking a supplier.

 

Here’s How Our Business Leads Service Works


  1. DRMA is contacted by a company seeking a service or supplier.
  2. We email our manufacturing members* asking if they are interested in joining a pool of potential candidates.
  3. You respond “Yes, I am interested.”
  4. We provide the company with a list of “Yes” responders for consideration.
  5. You are potentially awarded with the company’s business.

*If a company is seeking a service provided by Affiliate or Associate members, we provide a list of all such members directly to the inquirer.

It’s that easy!

And don’t forget that DRMA’s Business Leads service works both ways. If your company is over capacity and needs to out-source a job, remember to tap into our service.

Contact Shay for more info.
