Becoming a member of MPMA is an investment in your company's future. Your membership helps propel our mission - to drive success in Minnesota precision manufacturing by strengthening the skilled workforce.

What sets the MPMA apart from other manufacturing or professional associations in the state? Some examples include:

  • Legislative Advocacy: Strengthening the skilled workforce by creating the Youth Skills Training Program and more.
  • Workforce Development: This is the cornerstone of our association. In 2020, we are establishing an incumbent training program to provide training programs for members and their employees.
  • Strong Partnerships: Collaborating with industry leaders to develop the Minnesota Manufacturing Conference, which brings together hundreds of manufacturers.
  • Leadership Councils: Bringing together new and experienced industry leaders to strengthen relationships and personal development.
  • Publications: Our bi-monthly magazine, Precision Manufacturing Journal provides insight into the industry. And the annual Buyer's Guide, which is published each January, is a comprehensive and trusted resource for all of your manufacturing and related needs.

There are different membership categories (listed below). Since all memberships are corporate memberships, all Minnesota employees will be counted in your company.
