So far, 2018 has been a year to remember for AEM and the equipment manufacturing industry.

The association’s board members and its staff have been hard at work advancing key priorities and supporting the needs of its members. Their efforts have paid dividends, as AEM has accomplished quite a bit over the course of the year.

Working together, leadership volunteers from member companies have helped AEM:

  • Unify its voice in Washington D.C. through its many advocacy efforts and activities
  • Grow and evolve AEM statistics programs
  • Address workforce challenges plaguing the industry
  • Ensure the long-term future of AEM’s many trade shows
  • Influence and communicate worldwide standards, regulatory developments and compliance issues
  • Identify and explore new and emerging technologies and industry trends through its Thinking Forward member events and content

AEM is always looking for volunteer leaders from our member companies to help continue to drive the industry forward. Are YOU willing to raise your hand to serve on one of our boards, committees or other groups?

Volunteering at AEM offers a unique chance to not only network and interact with peers, but also to exchange ideas and learn from others. And as AEM Board Chair Rick Goldsbury noted in a March 9 blog published in the Industry Advisor newsletter, "creating a culture of giving back will help create leaders who are ready to be the next generation of ambassadors for our industry."

So if your company is a member of AEM, and you have skills and expertise to offer the association, take a moment to visit AEM’s volunteer sign-up page.

All that’s required is a small amount of time to make a big difference for AEM, its members and equipment manufacturers everywhere.
