Who We Are

The Additive Manufacturing Coalition is a national membership organization recognized as the national voice for additive manufacturing with decision-makers and stakeholders, including federal agencies and Congress. We are committed to supporting our Members before the federal government and helping them navigate funding and legislative challenges.  


We are dedicated to connecting our Members with the federal government.  Our role will be to help the AM community navigate the complex legislative and public funding challenges that exist on Capitol Hill and across the federal agencies.  This will include a significant focus on the day-to-day issues that arise. The AM Coalition is intended to help bring focus and attention to the array of issues that will ultimately arise in collaboration with the existing government affairs professionals at our members. We will also provide a mechanism for some of the smaller companies and organizations to have a seat at the table as issues and positions are devised for the community.

Why join the coalition?  

Additive Manufacturing is a critical element of both our economic prosperity and national security.  However, most policymakers have only a limited understanding of the importance and current state of development.  Furthermore, the disruptive nature of this technology will create major shifts in the way things are made going forward. We need thoughtful policies and strong funding for research and development to ensure that America wins the race to implement these new capabilities.  You need to ensure that your voice is heard as these policies are decided. You need a seat at the table, the Coalition is your path to access and engagement. Click on the link to learn about membership opportunities.
