OCRsAEM is set to commence with member company and official company representative (OCR) contact information verification, starting April 15.

The association's membership team will enlist the help of Beyond Vision to contact OCRs and confirm contact information. Beyond Vision is a not-for-profit company that is engaged in the mission of enriching the lives of people who are blind through the dignity of work valued by customers and the community.

"This is an extra step beyond the electronic verification done via the ADU during the AEM member renewal process," said AEM Director of Membership Paul Malek. "It serves to allow AEM to maintain the world-class accuracy of its SMART database and help ensure its ability to provide the right information to the right people."

AEM has completed a pilot program with Beyond Vision, with good results. The company contacted 200 OCRs on behalf of the association to confirm or update contact information. Beyond Vision has also worked with a number of AEM member companies, engaging in a number of various assignments such as machining, assembly and packaging.

Any AEM member company OCRs with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact Paul Malek at pmalek@aem.org or 414-298-4153.
