Legislative Protection:

NECSEMA’s number one priority is to be your voice on the state, local and federal level. We keep you informed about the issues affecting your business in New England by engaging with legislators and regulators. NECSEMA has five State Chapters (CT, ME, MA, NH & RI) that represent the industry at the local level at each state capitol. These State Chapters are made up of members from all categories who volunteer their time and talents to protect the industry’s business interests. Each State Chapter works with a lobbyist and NECSEMA staff member. Legislators know that NECSEMA’s lobbyists and grassroots legislative network will aggressively represent the interests of all its members.

Networking Opportunities:

Key events throughout the year bring together associates, affiliates and wholesalers with retail members to exchange information on topics of mutual concern. Each Fall, NECSEMA holds a beverage summit and its Annual Meeting which includes a Table Top Networking Reception and Dinner. This event is designed to provide vendors, retailers with opportunities for one on one communication, interaction, and education. NECSEMA’S Trade Show is our premier event and a perfect vehicle to establish connections with key vendors in the New England marketplace. Trade Show provides you the opportunity to be the first to see new product introductions, merchandising ideas and increase your bottom line.
