2018 USTMA TIRE MANUFACTURING AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

All 12 USTMA member companies have selected an outstanding employee to represent the best of our industry in the second annual USTMA Tire Manufacturing Ambassador Program. Each company representative was chosen for his or her dedicated service and superior leadership qualities. This year’s event will be held June 25-26 in Washington, D.C. 

Ambassadors will have the opportunity to participate actively in the mission of USTMA as an advocate for U.S. tire manufacturing, increase their understanding of how Congress affects our industry by talking with USTMA senior staff and government affairs experts and engage with the congressional delegations that represent USTMA member manufacturing facilities around the country.

The program schedule includes a tour of the U.S. Capitol that will highlight significant historical events and history of the buildings and those who served our country in Congress. It also entails congressional office visits in both the Senate and House of Representatives, and Ambassadors will be celebrated during a Recognition Dinner.
