Why Join?

TAMA’s mission is to strengthen and expand Tennessee’s automotive industry. As the supply chain has become increasingly complex over the past 30 years, the need for industry collaboration has never been greater. TAMA believes that best practice sharing and industry wide networking is essential for not only developing operational excellence among Tennessee’s suppliers but is also critical to enhancing the state’s overall competitive advantage. 

TAMA plays a critical role in getting suppliers engaged in this interconnected network in Tennessee and helping companies to react to the challenges of the global marketplace. Members have access to networking opportunities, supplier training and seminars. TAMA members also are engaged in efforts to create a strong workforce in Tennessee and in growing and bolstering the supply chain.

TAMA is a founder and co-presenter of the annual Southern Automotive Conference which brings more than 500 industry executives from across the country together each year. Conference co-founders include the Alabama Automotive Manufactures Association and the Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association. The conference rotates between the four states: Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. In 2018, the conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. Members receive priority booth sign up and discounted registration.
