Mandated by the need for more young people to seek careers in the precision metalworking industry, TDMAW worked with the NTMA and AMBA Milwaukee Chapters to form the Wisconsin Precision Metalworking Council (WPMC). The WPMC is also a collective voice to address State legislators. The WPMC represents over 6,000 employees in 200 companies.

June Outing - In June of each year we host an outing where members choose between golf and Lake Michigan fishing. The committee works very hard to make this outing one to rival any other, so there are always ample door prizes at the dinner following the day's events. .
