As a public-private partnership, NAMII employs a shared leadership model between industry and government. NAMII has a director with four deputy directors each overseeing one of the following areas: Technology Development, Technology Transition, Advanced Manufacturing Enterprise, and Workforce/Educational Outreach.
The government also has a multi-agency Technical Advisory Board in place within NAMII, which is led by the Cooperative Agreement (CA) Technical Program Manager to advise on technical direction, including strategic visioning; project selection and project review; education and workforce development; industry partnering; and other technical activities within the institute.
Additionally, NAMII has both a Governance Board and an Executive Committee.
The Governance Board is made up of representatives from Lead and Full members; directors from member Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs); and small business members. The Governance Board provides collective input to the NAMII Executive Committee.
The Executive Committee comprises of a smaller group of representatives from industry, academic, and government members. Executive Committee representatives from NAMII industry and academic members are elected by the NAMII Governance Board. Executive Committee representatives for the government are nominated by the Technical Advisory Board.
