National E-tailing and Mailing Organization of America

NEMOA was founded in 1947 by a handful of pioneering New England mail order companies – Johnny Appleseed’s, Brecks of Boston, Brookstone, and Deerskin Trading among them – as a professional group for discussions, community building, and information exchange. Over the past 65 years, NEMOA has grown beyond New England yet its focus remains catalog and direct e-tail companies, large and small. With over 200 corporate members from across the country, NEMOA is one of the nation’s largest professional organizations dedicated exclusively to the catalog/e-tail industry. Today NEMOA is a thriving community of catalogers and e-tailers sharing information and networking. NEMOA hosts two conferences each year, spring and fall. For more information visit
