MANA has functioned as a horizontal organization for reps and their principals, offering membership to any firm that is willing to ascribe to our Code of Ethics. We feel that we’ve had a positive impact on the unique relationship that is the rep/principal method of going to market. While our sister associations also promote this business partnership approach to marketing, they have tended to do so on a targeted basis, expending their resources in a given industry or geographic market. MANA has, and will continue to focus on the broader picture of education, making its presence known at the state, national, and international levels. At the same time, MANA lends its support to these sister organizations and helps fund the Manufacturers’ Representative Educational Research Foundation (MRERF) in education regarding the profession.
Frankly, many professional sales agencies belong to a minimum of two rep associations — MANA, and an industry specific or geographic-oriented organization. Many of these excellent vertical associations can be accessed from our web site, and we encourage you to visit them once you are through browsing here. Local chapters of MANA members exist in most major metropolitan areas. Click here for a list of MANA networking chapters.
