National Association of Manufacturers Alexander Hamilton Award for Extraordinary Support of Manufacturing in America

Ivanka Trump to Be Honored with NAM’s Alexander Hamilton Award for Extraordinary Support of Manufacturing in America. Washington, D.C. – Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump will be the inaugural recipient of the National Association of Manufacturers’ Alexander Hamilton Award on Wednesday, Feb. 12. The event will mark the 125th anniversary of the NAM’s founding as well as the launch of the association’s historic “Creators Wanted” campaign”.

“Ivanka Trump embodies the collaborative spirit and relentless drive needed to solve manufacturers’ most pressing challenge—the workforce crisis. Like no one in government has ever done, she has provided singular leadership and shown an unwavering commitment to modern manufacturing in America. The Alexander Hamilton Award honors leaders who have made exceptional contributions to growing manufacturing in the United States and to empowering more Americans with high-tech, high-paying modern manufacturing jobs,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “For her work bringing together leaders of industry, government and academia to put in-demand careers within reach for all Americans, Ivanka stands out as the perfect choice for this award.”

The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing employs more than 12.8 million men and women, contributes $2.37 trillion to the U.S. economy annually and has the largest economic multiplier of any major sector and accounts for 63% of private-sector research and development. The NAM is the powerful voice of the manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers compete in the global economy and create jobs across the United States.
