A Collaborative BTMA & WMNTMA Business Event
September 25,2018
Courtyard Marriott- Marlborough MA
Trump, Tariffs, and the New Washington:
Two Years After the Election that Changed It All
Presented by Omar Nashashibi of the Franklin Partnership

We are thrilled to announce that Omar Nashashibi of The Franklin Partnership will be presenting Trump, Tariffs, and the New Washington. This informative presentation will provide you our members the opportunity to learn more about ever changing terrain. President Trump promised to change Washington and unlike most other politicians, he has kept that promise – our nation’s capital is a very different place. Tariffs on steel, aluminum, and other inputs have drastically changed the U.S. manufacturing landscape as the tax cuts spurred optimism and Congress finally came together to pass a career and technical education bill. Omar S. Nashashibi is a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. having represented the NTMA for more than a decade before the U.S. Congress, White House, and federal agencies. This is your chance to hear directly from a Washington insider about what is really happening and how tariffs, taxes, regulations and other developments impact your business.Members of our sister chapter, Western MA NTMA have been invited to attend providing a fabulous opportunity to get caught up with your network and perhaps make some new connections.

Who is The Franklin Partnership and Omar Nashashibi?
Omar S. Nashashibi is a Founding Partner with The Franklin Partnership, a bipartisan lobbying firm based in Washington, D.C. and represents the NTMA in our nation’s capital. Having represented manufacturing associations in Washington since 2002, he is an expert on the various public policy issues such as trade tariffs, taxes, and job training affecting businesses throughout the country. Omar has twenty years of experience working with policymakers, politicians, and the media. He lobbies the White House, members of Congress and government agencies who issue thousands of new laws and regulations each year. Before founding his own firm in 2005, Omar worked for the Office of Management and Budget, part of the White House and a large multi-state law firm. Omar graduated from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where he studied Political Science and International Affairs.

For the fourth consecutive year, NTMA is proud sponsor of Manufacturing Day (MFG Day). MFG Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturers from across the United States engage the talent pipeline by simply opening their doors and inviting the community in to tour and find out more about the exciting, rewarding manufacturing career pathway that they can offer.  We encourage you to join with the other manufacturers in recruiting and connecting with the future workforce, educating the public on manufacturing opportunities and showcasing your company’s growth and business success in a global economy.

Thinking about hosting an MFG Day event? These resources can guide your planning process as you celebrate modern manufacturing in your organization!  Don’t forget…even though the official MFG Day is October 5th, 2018, any day of the year can be proclaimed Manufacturing Day!

One Voice offers seven, easy steps to help you plan a plant tour for the community. Remember, the most effective way to educate people about manufacturing and the job opportunity that is available in the industry, is to give them a chance to see it firsthand.

Mfg Day 2018

Over the next decade nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be needed and 2 million will go unfilled due to the current skills gap. The inability to meet labor demands continues to negatively impact your individual company and the nation’s economic growth unless action is taken by every NTMA member company.

NTMA’s flagship youth engagement program provides a key link between students, educators and NTMA members. Through exciting, gladiator-style robot creation and battle competitions, the NRL creates a skilled, tech-savvy labor force that can meet today’s needs of modern manufacturing, along with the needs of tomorrow, while sparking students interest in exploring manufacturing careers. We need your help in developing future manufacturing talent. Visit the NRL Industry Tool-Kit to get more information.
