AEM OCRsAEM is set to commence with the verification of certain member company job functions by reaching out to official company representatives (OCRs), starting Oct. 2.

The association's membership team will enlist the help of Beyond Vision to contact OCRs and confirm and add five targeted job functions and 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 utilized Beyond Vision's services in April of this year to confirm OCR contact information, with good results. 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 or 414-298-4153.
