A volunteer organization recognizing the equal importance of all industry segments, the MAFDA fully embraces the quadrangle of business entities that encompass and support the regional fastener distribution industry. Distributors, Manufacturers, Importers, and Sales Representatives are all encouraged to join and participate in common interest agendas.
The MAFDA holds meetings and gatherings that include an annual industry specific educational series event, industry wide social events, regularly scheduled board meetings, a golf and scholarship outing (with benefits awarded to qualifying college bound children of association members), and a holiday social. In addition, the MAFDA engages various social media, fastener specific training initiatives, and industry news blogs to help keep members abreast of current events affecting the fastener industry. The association continually searches for new ideas, programs, and ways to grow, expand, and educate the membership.
