Who are NEMOA's members?
NEMOA's member companies come from all across the US, Canada and Europe; they are catalogers, retailers, e-marketers, suppliers and more.
What are NEMOA's primary activities?
NEMOA is the founder of the only national summit dedicated to catalogers & etailers, which occurs twice a year.
In 2019 the Spring Summit was held in Boston, MA and the Fall Summit will take place in Chicago, IL.
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 to educate, connect, and inspire multi-channel direct marketers so they can evolve their marketing strategies, overcome challenges, and grow their businesses. We achieve this through two educational summits each year and through memberships which provide access to content, an industry job board, and discounted summit registrations.
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 71 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.
