The collaborative work and power behind an organization with more than 1,800 member companies – was essential in clearing the clutter. While each of you was neck-deep in navigating new and murky waters, the MMAC was working with policymakers to ensure the business community was heard. Our partnership with local and state policymakers led to more clear reopening plans and strategies.
Working with public health officials and other experts, MMAC helped produce guidelines and FAQs to help businesses reopen, operate safely and address issues as they emerge.
As manufacturers and offices reopened, SMEs endured, adapted and inspired. Our member outreach program unearthed some amazing small business stories.

While Milwaukee's business leaders continue to navigate the murky waters of the pandemic, MMAC is working local, state and federal government to ensure the business community is heard.
Industry-specific working groups
Business owners are not experts on epidemiology or public health. So in the middle of a pandemic, how do you develop policies that slow the spread of COVID without shutting down the economy? That is the question several industry-specific working groups grappled with in 2020, convened by MMAC with the City of Milwaukee Public Health Department.
In sectors ranging from restaurants and schools to sports and cultural venues, these groups have been working through the practical implications of City health orders to control COVID. These frank, cooperative discussions have resulted in workable solutions allowing many schools and businesses to remain open.
Networking can be tough even in normal times, but today's remote world adds a whole new set of challenges. Let MMAC's unique programs help you keep doing business in a virtual world.
