Midwest Manufacturers' Association serves as the “central office” for associations and trade groups focused on manufacturing including AMFA, CMMA, RRMEA, and TSMA. MMA’s primary service region is rural Minnesota, western North Dakota, western South Dakota, and northwest Wisconsin.
MMA serves as a catalyst for the creation of new manufacturing-focused trade organizations and the collaboration of existing organizations throughout the Upper Midwest. By joining forces under one central office, the manufacturing industry in the Midwest region has a way to express its collective voice … to government, to suppliers of common goods and services, and to each other.
Rachel joined MMA as the new Executive Director in January 2022. She comes from a sales and events background and worked in manufacturing years ago.
Rachel lives in Sartell with her husband and three teenage children. In her previous position she had served on 19 different boards and committees including CentraCare, United Way Imagination Library, the City of Sartell Economic Development Council, the Sartell CVB board and president of the Sartell Chamber to mention a few.
