MAPI is a nonprofit professional society supporting manufacturing leaders. As the Manufacturing Leadership Network, our mission is to help manufacturing leaders make smarter business decisions. We accomplish this through membership programs for manufacturing executives, professional development events, and manufacturing-focused business insights and research.
Membership in MAPI
As a leader in your company, you are often expected to have answers to your colleague’s questions and provide guidance on your employer’s strategic direction. But what happens when you don’t know the answer? What if your business is facing unique challenges? Enter MAPI. Our mission is to help manufacturing leaders make smart business decisions. We do this through:
- Live meetings – our members-only meetings connect you with manufacturing professionals sharing a similar title and responsibilities. Connect with your peers for education, benchmarking, and networking. Held in locations throughout the country, these meetings help you briefly step away from your day-to-day responsibilities and focus on the bigger picture.
- Online communities – our digital communities help you connect with your peers year-round. Can’t make a meeting, or don’t have time to wait for the next one? You can connect 24/7 with only an internet connection.
- Professional development for you and your team – in addition to our members-only meetings, MAPI hosts several conferences each year. Open to both members and non-members, MAPI members and their teams receive discounted registration rates. Additionally, complimentary webinars for members and their teams are held regularly throughout the year.
- Surveys and research – benchmark against your peers and gather insights on the issues that matter to you most.
