Membership is open to any company or other business entity that supports Michigan's energy efficiency industry. Each member assigns a representative to the association who will receive association communications and represent the company or organization within the association.
See company and organization membership categories and dues below.
Individuals are eligible for membership under certain circumstances.
There are two (2) classes of members: Voting and Non-Voting. Voting members must have a business location within the state of Michigan. Their representatives are eligible to chair committees and serve on the board of directors. Non-voting members' representatives can serve on committees and attend any association meeting. All members are encouraged to attend and participate in all association activities.
