Why Join BAMA?

View our membership brochure

What is the Bay Area Manufacturers Association?

BAMA is a non-profit trade association serving the manufacturing community and related industries. For more than 50 years, BAMA’s mission has been to provide Tampa Bay’s manufacturing community with quality educational and training programs, events with high take away value and forums for information exchange.


Not a member of BAMA? So why should you join? Here are some of the best reasons:

1. Giving Back to Your Community
BAMA provides opportunities to help young minds through internships, education and scholarships. Our STEM program provides scholarships and science project awards to students who want to work in and study manufacturing.

2. Business networking.
Business networking with anyone and everyone is essential to the growth of any business, especially business networking with those in your industry. Some industries are still fairly young and by networking with your peers you can all work together to increase the exposure of your specific industry, thus increasing the visibility of each individual member's business.

3. The opportunity to work with fellow members.
With the increased exposure of various industries, many veteran industry organization members may be finding their workloads are getting to a point where they have to outsource some of their projects. If they don't know about you, they won't even have the chance to consider sending you some of their overflow. Not to mention, most members may specialize in certain procedures and, should a task come up for a client that is not one of their specialties, they may need to subcontract the project.

4. Learning from your fellow members.
No matter if you are an experienced business professional or new to the industry, there is always something to learn from others. And those new to the industry can sometimes be an excellent source of new, fresh ideas.

5. The chance to get involved in new ventures.
Many veteran industry organization members collaborate to initiate new ventures and projects to help enhance their industry. Usually, during the start-up phase of these new ventures, it is common to work with those that you know and respect and have them involved in the process. By being a member of an industry organization and staying involved, you become visible to your fellow members and thus may be requested to become involved in the newest industry-boosting project.

6. Making new friends.
Being a member of any organization results in making friends with fellow members in the same industry and with common interests. These friendships can also result in a mentor-type relationship where the two (or more) of you share ideas that will help to boost each other's businesses and even your personal lives.
