CAM's Legislative Agenda
- Provide an online focal point of CAM's message and a repository of current
information on key issues.
- Provide a forum for an online community to interact and share innovative ideas
pertaining to the revival of the U.S. industrial base - identifying specific and
tangible corrective actions to be proposed.
- Provide a unified voice from which to communicate the importance of this message
and propose corrective actions to those leaders who can facilitate the changes
that must take place.
The U.S. Government can play a critical role in assisting domestic
manufacturers. To promote positive action by government, CAM has developed a
Legislative Agenda to concisely communicate areas we have identified for needed
legislative initiatives. Please review this document by selecting the

CAM's Outreach Activities
CAM will be using a variety of communication tools to accomplish our mission. In addition to this
online videos, social media and printed materials will be utilized. Live presentations will also
be used to communicate the message. This message will consist of a 1-hour
PowerPoint based presentation. Once the presentation has been developed, a
training module will be made available, assisting CAM members in locating venues
and effectively presenting the material.
Finally, as the subject of the economy and the state of manufacturing changes, the organization will monitor
developments and digest the information for updates to membership of the organization. Communication of this information
will be presented via the Website and through email broadcasts to members, as well as
through postings on social media.
