I would like to:
The Electrical Manufacturing and Coilwinding Association (EMCWA) is dedicated to advancing the electrical manufacturing industry for the benefit of its members.
• Industry Exhibition: Re-energize your career and your business with 'the Big Picture'
• Technical Conference: Technical Conference: Keeping pace with new technology
• EMCWA: A global outreach for a global marketplace
• Workshops and Seminars: Hands-on knowledge
• Scholarships foster our mission of learning
• Communications Communications keep you "connected" throughout the year
Members of professional associations, such as EMCWA, reap tremendous rewards, both personally and professionally. Most earn more than their colleagues who are not affiliated with a professional association. Membership benefits in EMCWA include:
• Educational programs
• Enhancement of your personal credentials
• Events for learning and networking
• Industry leadership and advocacy
Since our formation in 1974, membership has risen sharply. Our diverse membership draws on the varied professional talents of representatives from core industries, related businesses, colleges and universities and others in the field. Members are scientists, engineers, executives, managers from all disciplines, manufacturing experts, designers and others. Our objective, however, is more aggressive than simply increasing the ranks. Advancing our industry through education, member participation, and communication is our goal. We invite you to join us - and grow with us.
There are four types of members:
A professional member must be an engineer or scientist or other person with professional responsibilities in the field of electrical manufacturing, with not less than two years of professional participation in research development, application or sales of electrical manufacturing technology. An engineer, scientist of other professional is defined as a person with a Bachelor's degree and / or a person who has been employed for not less than five years in duties that pertain to scientific engineering or sales, and / or a person who is registered as an engineer or scientist under state law
Companies or firms can become company members if they produce goods or services for the coil winding or related electrical manufacturing industries. Company members can appoint three representatives. A company member's representatives must meet the qualifications of a professional member and will have the same rights and privileges as a professional member. A company can change its representatives at any time.
An associate member must be a person engaged in professional efforts directed towards the growth of electrical manufacturing technology. Also, a person who otherwise meets the criteria for professional membership but lacks the two-year requirement may become and associate member.
A student must be registered in a course of study directed toward the attainment of an academic degree, and shall be required to continue as such, as a condition of tenure in this classification
Membership Roster and Directory
A Membership Roster and Directory is published annually. This alone can be worth your membership fee! It is a "Who's Who" of our industry, with listings of:
• EMCWA News
• Committees and Counsel
• EMCWA Product Listings
• EMCWA members, officers and directors names and addresses
• Constitution and bylaws
This publication is a valuable resource when you are looking for information about products or trying to reach other members for networking.
Conference Reports presented at the annual industry meeting are available in a CD format and printed in a Proceedings Book issued at the conference. The value of these reports in reflecting what is going on in the industry cannot be overstated. Current and back issues of the Proceedings are available for sale. Also, news bulletins and updates are mailed regularly to members, and are available on this website. The EMCWA also publishes news and useful technical articles in periodic industry publications
