NAMA serves as the Washington, DC, office for its members. We’re there monitoring government regulations and legislative activity so you and your staff don’t have to. In today’s complex political environment, having access to policy makers in Washington is a critical component of having a successful operation. By representing all millers, each individual company’s clout is magnified many times beyond what it could accomplish working on its own.
The milling industry has supported a nonprofit organization representing millers’ interests since before 1902 when the first national milling association was formed. The long history of milling associations shows the commitment millers have to support the milling industry.
Today NAMA member companies operate mills in 38 states and Canada. NAMA members represent more than 90 percent of total industry production capacity.
Board of Directors
Each milling member company has one seat on the Board of Directors and one alternate.
The Board elects a Chairman and Vice Chairman for a two-year term and seven additional members to the Executive Committee. The elected committee members represent each of the three largest milling companies and a balance of both medium and small companies. At least one company from each category of miller: wheat, corn, and oat are represented on the committee.
