Support programs and resources for college students and NEMRA members

In today’s fast paced and competitive sales environment, yesterday’s techniques and methods will not always meet the rigorous requirements of our customers. To keep pace and confront this challenge, we need to be better educated, more highly trained, and ready to recruit the next generation of sales leaders. 

That’s why the NEMRA Educational Foundation created the Empower Tomorrow Fund. NEMRA Empower Tomorrow Fund has now provided over $150,000 in Scholarships to employees, and children of employees, of NEMRA Members. This year, NEMRA has added two additional scholarships and will be providing 21 Scholarships, in total, to deserving candidates.

Give to the NEMRA Empower Tomorrow Fund, and support programs and resources for college students and NEMRA members.
