Hear what manufacturing leaders and their business partners say about HMMC membership and events.

Variety Of Helpful Topics

I joined HMMC in 2007 when I moved from field sales manager to a marketing director role at B. Braun. It was good for me to join during this transition. The content at the meetings allowed me to gain exposure to a variety of topics that were helpful in my new role and personal growth. In addition, I was able to meet individuals in similar roles and make new connections to share knowledge with.”

Broader Knowledge Base

While I have been with Dukal for over 20 years, I recognize that I don’t know everything that a manufacturer needs to know to be successful bringing a product to market within the healthcare space...As part of HMMC, I get access to a broader knowledge base and can learn from the experiences of my peers. HMMC has had a positive impact on both my professional growth and the success of Dukal.”

Networking With Other Members Has Been Invaluable

Networking with other HMMC members has been invaluable!

Key Conference Takeaways

I’ve learned so much from conference speakers and panelists, and have always left each conference with at least two or three takeaways that would greatly benefit our company...HMMC's role as a voice for manufacturers, as a source of education and information for our membership, and even as a lobbying arm for our members’ interests, is vital and essential.”
