AMCA Outreach—Time to Consider Associate Membership

Josh Parent, Associate Director, Business Development


If you design, fabricate, assemble, and sell as a regular public offering one or more products that fall under the AMCA product scope , the benefits of membership in AMCA, with its Certified Ratings Program and state-of-the-art product test laboratory, should be obvious. But did you know AMCA offers an associate membership for companies that do not manufacture certifiable product?

AMCA associates are not actually members, but companies and consultants that supply materials or services used by AMCA members. Imagine getting your salespeople in front of decision-makers from our nearly 400 member companies, companies that purchase millions of dollars of products—variable-frequency drives, bearings, drive belts, rubber and gasket material, aluminum and steel, to name a few—to support their manufacturing operations.

Further, you will have opportunities to communicate your message to the air-systems/buildings industry at large by sponsoring AMCA’s various educational outreach efforts, be it the exciting new AMCA insiteTM series of free, professional-development-hour-eligible webinars; various in-person events; and the award-winning AMCA inmotion magazine.

For more information about AMCA membership, click here or contact me at jparent@amca.org.

I look forward to hearing from you.
