Committees and working groups provide the framework for information exchange. Dues are paid by utility companies and membership benefits are extended to all employees of a member company. This allows access to all of the Council’s committees and working groups to anyone employed by a member utility. Create a log in to our web site and navigate to the committee forums to ask questions or review their documents.

We also conduct conferences, workshops, seminars and educational programs for utility professionals. Our programs are unique in that members design and control the content. A thorough review process keeps our programs current and relevant to member needs and allows us to adapt to the changing industry landscape.

Associate Members are vendors and suppliers to industry such as manufacturers, consultants, engineers, distributors and others who provide equipment, services or other goods to the electric utility members. Associate Members can be found in our Individual Directory online. There you will find a brief company bio, their contact information and may view their ad for additional information about their services.

Associate Members may view individual contact information for our committees, receive discounted registration fees and their ad and listing are printed in our Associate Member Directory which is distributed to utility members throughout the region.

Mana | Online

Through a major emphasis on education, aids in the development and promotion of mutually profitable relationships, ethical standards of behavior and interdependence among multi-line, outsourced sales companies like JD Technologies, LLC and marketing entrepreneurs, their principals and their joint customers.

Over the years, MANA has become known as the One Association For All Agents and Manufacturers. MANA has functioned as a horizontal organization for reps and their principals, offering membership to any firm that is willing to ascribe to our Code of Ethics.

We feel that we’ve had a positive impact on the unique relationship that is the rep/principal method of going to market. While our sister associations also promote this business partnersahip approach to marketing, they have tended to do so on a targeted basis, expending their resources in a given industry or geographic market. MANA has, and will continue to focus on the broader picture of education, making its presence known at the state, national, and international levels. At the same time, MANA lends its support to these sister organizations and helps fund the Manufacturers’ Representative Educational Research Foundation (MRERF) in education regarding the profession.

Mission: MANA is the association of interdependent manufacturers and representatives dedicated to educating, protecting and promoting the multi-line, outsourced sales function.
