4 │ 2018 Association Update

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT 2018 marks the 20-year anniversary of OESA. Since its inception, the Association has championed the business interests of automotive suppliers using collaborative efforts throughout the supply chain, effective government advocacy, and by providing valuable insight to help suppliers make business-critical decisions. OESA is a MEMA-funded initiative. It was founded by industry veteran Neil De Koker, a dedicated group of supplier executives and the conviction that there is value in having a singular supplier voice on issues of common interest. Over the past two decades, OESA has supported and represented suppliers during some of the best and most challenging times in automotive history. With new mobility technologies and non-traditional OEM entrants, the industry's pace continues to increase. Suppliers must be poised to quickly take advantage of new opportunities, while adapting to changes in government policies and evolving to meet changing customer demands. OESA remains committed to lead necessary forums and foster important dialogue to ensure the voice of suppliers is heard during these changes.

"Our mission is to champion the business interests of the supplier community — a commitment that we proudly embrace."

OESA is fortunate to have tremendous support. It is through the collective commitment of our members, sponsors, board of directors, OEM partners, industry thought leaders and government officials that we are able to address the unique needs of our industry. If your organization is a member of OESA, thank you for the opportunity to create positive outcomes for your company and the supplier industry. If you are a supplier executive and your company is not a member, I invite you to learn more about OESA. This book was designed to outline some of our most recent accomplishments and current initiatives. As always, please feel free to contact me with comments and questions at 248.430.5963 or jfream@oesa.org.

Julie A. Fream President and CEO


ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION OESA is one of four divisions of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA). Members of all divisions are represented by MEMA’s advocacy initiatives and have access to MEMA's emerging technology expertise.

GOVERNMENT ADVOCACY The Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association’s (MEMA) Government Affairs team in Washington, D.C. represents the voice of the supplier community. It has an established reputation with policy makers and lobbies on behalf of the mobility industry at both the federal and state levels. During 2017 and 2018, numerous issues — including NAFTA negotiations and new trade tariffs — directly impacted the supplier community. MEMA promoted the collective voice of all MEMA divisions by strongly advocating for economic growth, fair trade policies and manufacturing jobs in the United States. MEMA educates policy makers on issues that affect their constituents and equips member companies with information on legislative and regulatory issues. Additionally, MEMA is available for individual company consultation.
