Benefits are only benefits if they meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

You need access, clarity around the range of possibilities, and a voice that is heard in real time. You need connections to people who have been where you are and can provide meaningful perspectives. People who have your back, who are committed to helping each other overcome obstacles, push through challenges, and achieve success. And you need the strength and the confidence that comes from being a part of the whole.

Those are the needs we supply. That is the power of MEMA.

The Benefits of MEMA Membership

Original Equipment and Aftermarket memberships have three main benefits:


It’s easy to feel small and isolated and overwhelmed, regardless of your company size. Membership solves that through:

  • Networking with industry peers and stakeholders through councils, events and other forums.
  • Creating relationships between members and customers, peers, and experts.
  • A supportive, driven community focused on your best interests and your company’s sustainable success.
  • Access to advice, camaraderie, friendship, referrals, tips, tricks, encouragement, inside jokes, and partnerships that last a lifetime. 
  • Discounted rates for trade shows.
