CLEVELAND, OH —The Women in Manufacturing Association (WiM) and the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) announced a reciprocal membership partnership, providing members the unique opportunity to join both industry-leading associations.

Beginning February 24, manufacturing professionals who are new or renewing annual members of either association can also join the other association at a reduced rate.

“As the only national trade association dedicated to year-round support for women in the manufacturing sector, WiM is committed to providing members with the tools, training and thought leadership they need for success in their careers,” says Allison Grealis, WiM president. “This reciprocal membership program with AME is one exciting way for WiM members to expand their networks and grow their skills. I look forward to seeing WiM members benefit by affiliating with AME.”

Both associations are dedicated to providing educational programming, networking opportunities and industry information to help individuals in the manufacturing sector grow personally and professionally, as well as to improve their organizations’ performance and competitiveness.

“AME has always been devoted to opening seats at the table for women who are interested in joining the operational excellence movement,” says Kim Humphrey, AME president and CEO. “This partnership reaffirms that commitment and ensures AME and WiM members can have access to each organization’s resources, training and thought leaders.”
