The Washington, D.C.-based Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) will open AHAM Canada in July 2012. The move will supplant the Canadian Appliance Manufacturers Association (CAMA). CAMA is one of several membership councils within the Electro Federation of Canada. CAMA has now been scheduled to close on June 30, 2012.

The vast majority of CAMA members are also AHAM members, and the two associations have longed worked together on advocacy issues. AHAM said its move into Canada results from appliance manufacturers who want fuller integration of industry representation in Canada and the United States.

"Over the past year, members of both associations came to the conclusion that a single, dedicated appliance focused trade association representing the industry in both countries was the most efficient and effective way to provide member services and represent the industry before key audiences, including public policy makers," said Steve Caldow, current CAMA Executive Committee Chair.

AHAM Canada will employ Canadian experts to represent the industry before federal and provincial governments and will work closely with technical bodies impacting the home appliance industry. AHAM will also provide an enhanced market statistics program for Canada.

AHAM Canada will broaden appliance industry representation in Canada to include all AHAM members doing business in Canada, including floor care appliance manufacturers. AHAM will keep a three-person staff in the AHAM Canada office, and said AHAM Canada members, trade partners, government, and other stakeholders will benefit from the broader AHAM staff resources and member committees. An AHAM Canada Council, comprised of business leaders, will oversee the association work in Canada.

AHAM President Joseph M. McGuire said that mutual AHAM and CAMA members overwhelmingly endorsed the move.
