What We Do
MEMA is recognized in the region as one of the top trade associations, and that is because of our membership. With their continued backing and involvement, MEMA in turn is able to provide advocacy, education and support to Maine petroleum businesses and affiliate companies.
From home heating companies to those supporting the energy industry through goods and services, the Association works to unite a diverse group of industry professionals. Our membership is comprised of marketers who sell heating oil, gasoline, bio and diesel fuel, kerosene, propane, lubricants and alternative energy products at both the retail and wholesale levels. Associate members supply fuel handling, transportation equipment and services to MEMA’s petroleum marketers, in addition to computer, insurance, banking, consulting services and more. MEMA is also pleased to represent the majority of convenience stores located within the state.
Year-round, no one works harder on behalf of businesses like yours than the Association: we defend you against utility encroachment, protect you at a state and federal level and generate positive press for the industry. We also invest in education at several levels, delivering hands-on HVAC-R technician training at our state-of-the-art facility, MTEC, offering consumer-facing resources through Maine Energy Facts and organizing a variety of seminars and events on industry related topics for our members to enjoy throughout the year. In addition, we’re proud to be able to give our members exclusive access to selectively organized benefits packages. It’s for these numerous reasons and more that many from our membership tell us it doesn’t cost to belong to MEMA—it pays.
