Against the backdrop of economic and political uncertainty that faced our members in 2022, the National Association of Manufacturers proved to be resilient and steady. Over the past year, the organization has distinguished itself in the D.C. advocacy community by delivering strong results that solidify our unrivaled value as a powerful resource for manufacturers of all sizes. We continue to maintain and build our reputation as a trusted, respected voice for the industry, as well as an influential force in shaping critical outcomes for the competitiveness of manufacturing in the United States.
From building up the reputation of the industry with policymakers, media and the public, to growing the manufacturing workforce, to achieving regulatory reforms and legal victories, we have taken action to accomplish transformational manufacturing priorities. We battled back tax increases that would have devastated our industry, achieving important legislative amendments that few outside our organization predicted. We helped secure passage of the CHIPS and Science Act, benefiting every manufacturer in America by supporting competitiveness up and down the supply chain. We led on infrastructure implementation, ensuring that critical funds could be allocated to vital projects that will keep manufacturing moving—today, tomorrow and long into the future. And we continued setting the standard as an extension of manufacturing teams, providing operational resources to help our members protect against cybersecurity threats, overcome supply chain crunches and navigate the digital future.
Throughout 2022, the NAM once again defined itself as a one-stop shop trade association that gets key industry priorities across the finish line and the best intel, analysis and resources to our members and policymakers. No matter the political climate or the parties in power, the NAM has the expertise, the drive and the trust to serve our members and our industry. As we head into a new year, we are already taking on fresh opportunities and exploring new horizons.
We are excited about the road ahead and the work to come—and we will continue to lead the way.
