How Members Value Their ACMA Membership
Our business has materially benefited from our partnership and support of the work of the ACMA in preserving affordable postage rates, making remote sales tax collection workable, and finding a solution to the patchwork of state privacy laws. We have seen a positive ROI from all this work and we have been better prepared to address challenges and opportunities that continue to appear in the marketplace.
Over the course of our membership, the ACMA has saved us millions. For years, the ACMA has been the sole organization to provide our industry with visibility into potential cost increases, legislation and regulation and importantly, securing us a consistent ‘seat at the table’ in these matters.
My experience serving on the ACMA board has shown me what incredible things we can accomplish when we work together to attack common problems. From postal rates to complex state tax issues, to the mélange of privacy legislation confronting remote sellers, the ACMA is out in front of issues informing the membership, developing a strategic response and delivering results with our friends in Washington.
The ACMA fights for — and wins — positive outcomes for small, medium and large catalog & other remote merchants and their suppliers on issues critical to our business economic concerns on postage, taxes, privacy & data security, and product safety. ACMA needs greater participation to keep winning on concerns that will positively benefit our businesses.
