ALMA Member Advisory Council

The ALMA Member Advisory Council is a group of forward-thinking ALMA members who help provide AEU a clear understanding of the unique challenges that members face. By serving as a voice for the entire ALMA membership, they help AEU align products and services with specific member needs - now, and in the future.

Since its inception in 2014, the ALMA Member Advisory Council has been instrumental in recommending new products and services that would benefit the membership, providing valuable input on AEU innovations such as AEU LEAD® and the Compass® dashboard, and advising on industry-wide concerns affecting members. 

All of this insight helps AEU to better prepare for the future and continue to ensure that “Here, members benefit."
