NEMRA promotes and enhances the value of the independent representative to the electrical industry.
To become the global leader in promoting and developing independent representatives as an indispensable channel to market for the electrical industry.
The year was 1969, August 11th and 12th. The place: The Sheraton Inn at LaGuardia Airport in New York. Earlier that year, a notice was sent out to a number of independent electrical representatives across the country expressing an interest in seeing if a NEMRA organization could be formed, and asking if they would attend a meeting for that purpose.
The response was overwhelmingly positive. Many were interested, some could come, others had previous commitments-but all could be counted on to support the new organization. These were the people who showed up for this momentous two-day meeting; the people who hammered out a sketchy constitution and by-laws and set the tone of professionalism among manufacturers’ representatives that was to sound throughout the electrical industry from that day forward.
Who We Are
The National Electrical Manufacturers Representatives Association (NEMRA), is a not-for-profit association comprised of 400+ independent sales representatives and 200+ manufacturers in the electrical industry. The association’s charter is to develop and to strengthen each company’s sales, marketing, and management skills and to promote the benefits of doing business with an independent sales representative. The association also develops and maintains programs and activities designed to help these independent businesses to conduct their business in an ethical, efficient and productive manner.
