From the Chairman +In 2014 the San Antonio Manufactures Association (SAMA) will be celebrating its 100 year anniversary! To help gain some perspective about this period, the Babe debuted as a pitcher, Henry Ford introduced the assembly line, the world was on the cusp of its first world war, and, on the home front, the San Antonio Zoo was first opened.We cannot look forward to future success without understanding how far we have come. We had an amazing year in 2011. Manufacturing alone impacted the local economy by .2 billion. So what does that mean for SAMA? Based on our great success we are known as an outstanding resource and partner to make our manufactures great. And other organizations have credited SAMA for being the model for other associations to follow; working hand in hand with the New Braunsfels, San Marcos, Austin, Dallas and the Houston chapters.
