AEM’s grassroots campaign I Make America kicked off the first in a series of town halls scheduled this year designed to engage the 1.3 million men and women of the equipment manufacturing industry in a discussion about key policy issues. More than 150 employees attended the first town hall at AGCO’s Jackson, Minnesota-based manufacturing center on Thursday, May 17, where a group of industry and policy experts challenged the audience to get engaged and get involved in order to help advance the pro-manufacturing agenda.

The next two town halls will take place on Thursday, Aug. 16 at Doosan Bobcat’s production facility in Bismarck, North Dakota, and on Thursday, Sept. 20 at Terex Corporation’s Genie manufacturing facility in Redmond, Washington. I Make America supporters will have the opportunity to watch the next town halls live via a livestream.
