The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is a federation of 56 diverse product sections that are grouped into seven divisions. NEMA’s nearly 325 member companies manufacture products ranging from x-ray machines and CT scanners to motors and generators, lamps, luminaires, cable tray, building wire, enclosures, traffic controls, nurse call systems, batteries, residential controls, and more.
Members are affiliated with one or more sections, and it is within the sections that:
- Technical standards are developed
- Legislative and regulatory issues decided
- Economic and market data are collected
- Product-based educational and marketing campaigns are created
Each section contracts with NEMA's core departments, Business Information Services, Technical Services, Medical, Government Relations, and Industry Operations, to provide the services the section decides are needed to meet its goals and objectives.
