Save time and make money — You want ROI from CME, and we deliver. Our services and programs bring your business new ideas and insights to improve competitiveness - reducing your costs and expanding your sales. Furthermore, members are able to access more than $60,000 in discount savings and customized services through CME’s Industry Benefits Program (IBP) — from office supplies and health benefits to group RRSP plans and accounts receivable insurance. Your investment in CME is a smart business decision.
Increase business skills, productivity and competitiveness — Programs like BCIT, LEAN, leadership courses, Communication in the Workplace and Path2Work give manufacturing employees and factory floor leadership the foundational skills they need to excel.
Connect and learn through BC’s best executive networks — Our Executive Councils are exclusive peer-mentoring groups that allow business owners and senior executives to meet in a structured, non-competitive environment and learn from each others’ experiences. CME British Columbia offers councils for the entire upper two rungs of management in organizations, designed to benefit and develop the entire management team (CEO, COO, VP Operations, VP Human Resources and VP Sales, Marketing and Business Development.) 
Go Global and tap into international business opportunities — CME provides its members with access to thousands of companies and potential partners in vast networks with its Enterprise Canada Network (ECN) initiative, as well as business development events, trade shows, supplier workshops, certifications and more.
Have your voice heard, and influence policy through exclusive access to all levels of government — CME fights for the policy decisions to make manufacturing and exporting more competitive by providing feedback and challenging policy, regulatory and tax issues affecting members.
