Help Shape the Future

Membership in the Southeastern Meat Association will give you and your company a chance to shape the future of the meat industry in the United States.

Even if you are a member of other organizations, you are invited to join this dynamic association for the tremendous benefits you can receive.

Membership costs will be kept as low as possible to encourage participation.

Get Help or Get Involved - Committees

The standing committees, which make recommendations in vital areas of the Association's operation, include Executive, Education, Regulatory, Membership and Annual Meetings.

The committees work all year long to promote the general interest and education of the Association and of its individual members.

New Technical Services Committee will allow you to get help from within the membership or outside professional help if needed. Committee includes industry consultants and university experts with expertise in:

  • OSHA regulations,
  • FSIS / USDA regulations,
  • HACCP,
  • microbiology,
  • meat processing and
  • food science.

Keep Up-To-Date

An Annual Meeting and numerous short courses are held each year to provide a wealth of educational information designed to increase the efficient operation of meat and poultry plants. Idea exchange among members, decision making to establish association policy, and fellowship among friends are goals of our meetings.

Monthly, the Southeastern Meat Association members will receive the news bulletin (Southeastern Meat FAX), either through Fax or via access to the web site. This news bulletin keeps members abreast of new and revised regulations affecting the meat industry nationally and area wide. Interesting information concerning individual members and other association news is included in the bulletin.
