Workforce Development

MCAA’s members have a demand for skilled–often highly skilled engineering–personnel to develop, manufacture and sell their products. The Association strongly supports the variety of initiatives underway by a number of companies (like Dow and ExxonMobil) and organizations (like FIRST and Project Lead the Way). We support every effort to strengthen the STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) curricula in our nation’s schools from elementary right through community colleges.


Product Approval Process

The Measurement, Control & Automation Association believes that the current Product Approval Process is broken. The Association has been looking at the process for many years and developing a game plan to try to improve it.

A committee of MCAA manufacturing members have been working with OSHA to improve the product approval process.
