CASMI Member Companies enjoy many benefits and a very active schedule.
Member Education Program
CASMI Members benefit from educational seminars at our Monthly Member Dinner Meetings. Up to 3 individuals from CASMI member companies can attend these meetings at no cost. Additional participants may attend at the rate of $50 per person. Member meetings feature knowledgeable speakers on topics of interest to spring manufactures, economic information, technology updates, employee benefits information, business and manufacturing updates and tips and other timely topics.
CASMI Member Companies have access to a Continuing Education Training Fund to help underwrite a portion of the cost of providing their staff and employees with additional training. Reimbursement for the costs of registration in professional development courses, seminars and other accredited training is available to a limit of $500 per member company per year.
CASMI Members and their guests benefit from a rich schedule of networking and social events throughout the year. Events such as CASMI's Annual Valentine Dinner Dance, CASMI Day at the Races and our Member/Supplier Golf Tournament offer CASMI members and Industry Suppliers the opportunity to network, reinforce relationships or establish new business connections in a relaxed atmosphere.
