As a Member of the AM Coalition (www.addmfgcoalition.org), you are invited to shape the topics, focus and format of our annual public Forums, join us for our closed, member-only, AM Coalition Roundtables with key Government officials, industry leaders, and academic experts, and ad hoc policy coffees with Congressional staff.
The AM Coalition presents a holistic view of additive manufacturing for the larger AM community. Together, we engage and educate manufacturing and research policy leaders across the Federal government. As AM penetrates across more sectors and markets, it will continue to be a disruptive technology that will likely be met with challenges and possibly even opposition. The AM Coalition stands ready to serve as a voice in support of all that additive manufacturing has to offer across national security, health, information technology and so much more.
