Over the past 12 months and throughout our affiliation, OE3 has helped CEMA grow into a stronger organization. In spite of efforts earlier this year to fracture our organization. CEMA has come out of 2017 stronger than it began. At the beginning of 2017 CEMA had about 1231 members. As we begin 2018 we stand at 1431 members. We grew by 200 new members in 2017. 2018 should be another banner year for our UNION.
