Associations We Belong To
This page will give you an outline of the associations we belong to and offer some insight into their purpose and outlook for the membership.
In 1933, under the National Recovery Act (NRA), industries were required to establish and use codes of practice to bolster the national economy. Led by a group of electrical repair firms from Charlotte, North Carolina, 23 firms from 8 southeastern states met on August 4, 1933, in Bluefield, West Virginia. Officers were elected, delegates began finalizing an industry code, and the National Industrial Service Association (NISA) was created.
EASA is a dynamic, professional trade organization that is recognized internationally as the leader in the electrical and mechanical apparatus sales, service and repair industry. EASA provides an ongoing flow of industry information and education that helps members worldwide serve as total solution providers for electrical and mechanical equipment and systems.
Today, EASA serves members who sell and service electrical, electronic and mechanical apparatus by educating, informing and promoting the highest standards of performance and ethics for the benefit of the industry as a whole. To achieve this goal, EASA publishes a wide range of reference materials and articles and maintains a database containing the largest variety of motor winding data available anywhere.
