NEMOA is a non-profit 501(c)(6) trade organization.
NEMOA was founded in 1947 as the New England Mail Order Association. Today, NEMOA (National Etailing & Mailing Organization of America) is one of the nation's most active multichannel merchant associations dedicated exclusively to the catalog/multichannel industry.
Our mission is "Networking and Education for Direct Marketers"
which we achieve through two educational conferences each year, and on our website where you'll find links to member organizations, updates on industry news, job postings, and an active message board.
NEMOA member companies come from all across the US, Canada and Europe - you don't need to be from New England to become a member. And you don't need to be a member to attend a NEMOA event.
HISTORY OF NEMOA
NEMOA was founded in 1947 by a handful of pioneering New England mail order companies - Johnny Appleseed's, Brecks of Boston, Brookstone, and Deerskin Trading among them - as a professional group for discussions, community building, and information exchange. Over the past 70 years, NEMOA has not only grown beyond New England, but its membership has also become more diversified, including printers, list brokers, service bureaus and other suppliers to mail order businesses. Yet its focus remains catalog and direct e-tail companies, large and small. Today, with over 200 corporate members from across the country, NEMOA is one of the nation's largest professional organizations dedicated exclusively to the catalog/e-tail industry.
NEMOA is devoted to bringing together catalog/direct marketers and their supporters to build relationships and learn about industry trends and issues.
