All vendors are required to be members in good standing following the shares of participation outlined below.

Major meter manufacturers: $800.00 annual dues.
All other manufacturers: $500.00 annual dues.
All manufacturers, reps, and all distributors: $350.00 annual dues.

NOTE: Tables at the meter school in the fall will not be available to those who are not in good standing.

Where does the money go?

Almost all of the funds are used to provide hospitality, as listed below.

Spring meeting. On Monday evening, the vendors hold a reception at the hotel or a suitable off-site venue. You and your guests will enjoy a less formal opportunity to visit the SWEMA members and other utility guests, and other vendor friends and talk business or just socially hang out.

In the fall meter school, the vendors provide hospitality at the host hotel so all students and instructors, and vendors can have a safe, good time. We provide the meal for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The hospitality room is open all evening with snacks and beverages.

Over the years, we have discontinued the expense of individual hospitality rooms and have done joint participation, and it has proven to be very successful. We would appreciate all vendors' compliance with these guidelines.

We want everyone to get a good return on investments for these activities and will take all suggestions to the committee for review.

The whole thing works when everyone does their part to keep it going.

Thanks to all vendors for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in the spring.
