With the dust finally settled on the 2014 Congressional elections and the 2016 Presidential campaign officially underway, manufacturers have more at stake in Washington than ever before. This is your chance to hear directly from a Washington insider about the latest on tax reform efforts, EPA and OSHA regulations, and how the new workforce training law will help your company. Omar Nashashibi is a lobbyist for the National Tooling and Machining Association in Washington, D.C. and will provide a unique perspective on the latest legislation, regulations, and battle for the White House.
