Distribution Management Association
DMA So CAl
DMA was originally founded in 1955 as a forum for members of the grocery industry. Over time, it has expanded and today is composed of representatives from almost every aspect of the distribution and logistics industries in Southern California. Being able to recognize the needs of our members that are beyond typical association benefits distinguishes DMA from other organizations. For example DMA has numerous relationships with organizations that provide additional benefits to member companies. Such benefits include employee hiring credits, access to no cost employee training and many other benefits that can help improve your organization’s bottom line. DMA also has a strong track record of giving back to the community through effective support of charities supporting children and support through DMA administered scholarships for students in need as well as member’s children.
