The Department of Economic Development has created cluster focuses and enlisted help from industry to focus joint efforts on the most critical issues.  Hence the creation of the Nebraska Manufacturing Advisory Council.

The Nebraska Manufacturing Advisory Council (NeMAC) is an industry driven advocate and advisory council to Nebraska state agencies and leaders in maximizing global competitiveness in the manufacturing industry.  The council provides a forum for discussing industry-related problems and resolutions and serves as a voice for manufacturers to strengthen Nebraska’s second largest economic driver.
