Our mission at the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers is to promote and grow manufacturing and Kentucky’s overall economy.
KAM members receive weekly news briefings regarding important manufacturing news in Kentucky and the United States, as well as news on Kentucky’s political climate, including weekly legislative newsletters during the regular Kentucky General Assembly. These newsletters keep members up-to-date on the latest developments on legislative issues impacting businesses and manufacturing in the Commonwealth.
