"Our Membership Is The Backbone Of Our Organization. Without The Support Of Individuals Like You
And Organizations Like Yours, We Would Not Continue To Succeed And Grow."


NAESA International is an organization open to individuals from all segments of the elevator industry who are interested in improving the manufacturing, performance, inspection, and safety of elevators, escalators, and other conveyances.

NAESA International is accredited by the ANAB to certify elevator inspectors and has an open certification program available to qualified individuals wishing to obtain a credential that attests to their expertise in the elevator industry. The year 2007 marked NAESA's 20th year as an ASME-accredited organization. NAESA International is represented on numerous ASME committees and therefore has the most current information available to members.


NAESA International has established a code of high ethical standards and expects that all members will conduct themselves accordingly.


Although originally organized to provide a forum for inspectors to meet, confer and learn, NAESA has expanded to provide the same services for all disciplines within the trade.  Educational programs, workshops, and seminars are presented at a level that all can relate to and understand.  Through these educational opportunities, NAESA International provides a forum where peers meet, discuss topics and ask questions; individuals with the expertise to do so provide the answers and lead the discussions relating to those questions.


To allow all members to participate, workshops are held in each region (Eastern, Central, Western, and Canadian) in the spring and fall of each year. In addition, NAESA International hosts the Wisconsin Symposium in the fall of each year. The educational portions of these workshops provide excellent opportunities to remain current with the latest developments in elevator technology and codes.  These workshops allow members to network with peers and other experts in the elevator industry – inspectors, consultants, contractors, and manufacturers – all meeting and intermingling, one assisting the other.


Members of NAESA International pay substantially lower fees for their annual recertification than those who are not members. Members also receive savings on registration fees for the Regional as well as all Code Update Seminars and Webinars. NAESA is also always working with other companies to provide discounts on products and services that will be beneficial to members such as airfare, car rentals, and codebooks. For the most recent information regarding member discounts, please visit www.naesai.org.


Members will receive a monthly e-newsletter, the Progress, informing them of the newest developments in the elevator industry. The Progress includes listings of all currently-scheduled classes and workshops, messages from the Executive Director with news from the main office, articles addressing code questions and issues, and employment opportunities. Members also have the ability to write articles and have them published in the Progress. This newsletter is emailed to all members and is also available on our website.


Members of NAESA have access to and are encouraged to utilize the Elevator Industry Forum on the NAESA website to post questions, thoughts, and general discussions on industry-related topics that are of interest to you. This is a great way to communicate with others in the industry from all over the world without leaving your desk!


The son, daughter, or grandchild of any NAESA member can apply for the Floyd J. Rommel Scholarship. NAESA picks two recipients of $3000 each year. Applicants must be high school seniors and have applied for at least one college. The Canadian Region also offers its members the opportunity to apply for the John Steele Memorial Scholarship. More information about how to apply can be found at www.naesai.org.


Codebooks dating back to 1921 are available to be searched by request from the NAESA office. This information is very helpful to individuals who may encounter older equipment in their inspection travels. Members should contact the Executive Director for assistance with information from older codes and standards.


Members of NAESA can run for positions on the Board of Directors and Board of Certification as well as positions as Regional Officers. This is an excellent opportunity to make your voice heard and be an active participant in the organization. Please refer to the Bylaws for more information. We encourage all our members to participate!


NAESA Members can view employment opportunities on the NAESA website and are emailed information about current job opportunities. Additionally, if your company or organization would like to post employment ads on the website, please simply email the job ad in Word format to christi@naesai.org 


Companies who are members of NAESA receive a 10% discount on exhibiting at NAESA’s Annual Symposium. A link under the “Resources” section on NAESA’s website will show up to date Organizational members. Each organization will have the designation of two company representatives who will receive discounts to classes, and the Progress newsletter emailed to them monthly. One of these designees can also serve on the Board of Directors.
