Each day you go to work to earn the support of your customers, while competing against others who are also trying to do business with your customers. CEMA's relationship with you reflects the same commitment to earning your support and a commitment to excellence as we are focused on providing benefits, services and products that enhance your business and our industry's ability to compete and grow in Connecticut.
The petroleum industry in Connecticut employs over 13,000 of our fellow citizens, sells more than 500 million gallons of heating oil to 682,000 consumers through 600 retailers, sells more than 1.6 billion gallons of gasoline to 2 million drivers through 1,400 retail outlets, and has more than 4,500 licensed, professional Energy Conservation Technicians working here every single day. This industry's total economic impact on Connecticut now exceeds $6 billion.
There are many industry organizations you can join . . . but here at the state level only CEMA will promote, preserve and protect your business interests. Here are some reasons we feel CEMA is your best choice, and why we work hard to "EARN YOUR SUPPORT".
You have to earn the support and loyalty of your customers - so do we. We publish the document entitled "Earning Your Support" so that we can lay out all the things we do as an association on behalf of petroleum marketers and their associated businesses. If you wonder what we do - here's where you will find that out. Click here > Earning Your Support, 2013
