Becoming a Member


Since 1988, the North Carolina Manufacturers Alliance (NCMA) has represented manufacturers on legislative and regulatory issues that impact daily operations and long-term viability. We are the voice of North Carolina Manufacturers.


Sooner or later, your company will be affected by legislation, regulation, or policy in North Carolina. NCMA is an advocate for manufacturers helping with the issues that matter most to you. We monitor governmental activities and trends that result in new and/or revised requirements focusing on Environment, Energy, Health & Safety, and Taxation. We promote sound science and economic viability to the North Carolina Legislature and regulatory agencies


NCMA partners with regulatory agencies in North Carolina to bring you the Environmental Compliance Workshop Series and the annual Environmental, Energy, Health & Safety (EEHS) School. These learning events help the manufacturing community sustain regulatory compliance, government relations, environmental stewardship and knowledge transfer.


Add your company's voice to ours. Join the ONLY community of manufacturers who are advocating and influencing legislative and regulatory policy exclusively for North Carolina manufacturers.
