CEMA to expand membership to all of the Americas

By |  September 17, 2014

The Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) held its Fall Meeting in Chicago, where the organization announced plans to expand membership to all countries in the Americas. CEMA will also print its book, “Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials,” in Spanish. Better known as the “Belt Book,” it’s currently in its seventh edition.

Nearly 100 CEMA members, as well as Pit & Quarry, attended the fall meeting. Economist Daniel Young, a vice president at Wells Fargo, gave a talk on the economy. Young said the U.S. economy continues its recovery, and noted that since 2009, the cumulative return of the stock market is at about 100 percent.

Topics of the group’s meetings included revising standards, establishing best practices, and the affects of federal legislation and regulations.

CEMA will hold its next annual meeting March 6-10, 2015 in Naples, Fla.
