Letter from the President The opportunities for suppliers to thrive in this rapidly-changing industry are infinite. Many of our members are already driving the industry’s emerging consumer lifestyle technologies and developing systems that will profoundly improve vehicle safety. The global marketplace is another key driver in this “new” automotive landscape with exponential growth opportunities in revenue, profits and global market share. Coupled with the onset of increased government and regulatory interest, the automotive industry is expected to change more in the next five years than it has in the last 50 years.

Julie A. Fream

President and CEO

The automotive industry is expected to change more in the next five years than it has in the last 50 years. OESA is changing too.

OESA is changing too. In 2015, we honed our mission to better clarify our role in the industry and reflect our commitment to the supplier community. Our mission is the guiding principle for everything we do: Champion the business interests of automotive OE suppliers. We also realigned our strategic initiatives to focus on the gamechanging events influencing the industry: • Be a relevant resource on advanced vehicle technology. New vehicle technology brings both new opportunities and challenges. OESA will be there to advise on both fronts. • Advance the interests of the supplier community on a global scale. Globalization is creating tremendous opportunities for suppliers. OESA will keep members abreast of relevant international information and trends. • Command a meaningful seat at the table of influence for our members. With the help of the MEMA advocacy team in Washington, D.C., OESA will continue to promote the supplier voice throughout the industry and value chain. In addition to emphasizing these strategic initiatives, we will continue to represent the supplier perspective; offer suppliercentric forums; and provide resources to help suppliers make mission-critical business decisions. The industry is in the midst of some of the most substantial technological advances in automotive history. It is at this crossroad that OESA serves as a valuable resource and positive change agent for the supplier community and the automotive industry. I look forward to our journey.

The MEMA Government Affairs office is a strong advocate for the business interests of OESA members. MEMA’s advocacy activities enhance the visibility and influence of suppliers, secure legislative initiatives, and provide policy makers and regulators with forward-thinking insight to better represent the voice of the supplier industry. Over the next five years, MEMA is dedicating its efforts to: • Increase its influence in Washington, D.C. and at the state level • Promote and protect new technology by addressing cybersecurity, V2V autonomous vehicles and fuel efficiency • Protect supplier intellectual property • Encourage safer vehicles, including the accelerated adoption of ADAS technology in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) • Provide for long-term growth through the ratification of meaningful trade agreements, implementation of tax reform and passage of a national energy policy Here are a few of MEMA’s recent advocacy successes and initiatives:
