"Working With Marketers to Grow the Shell Brand.”
When you need trusted resources, up-to-date information, and a network of dedicated professionals to turn to, NASM is working for you!
The National Association of Shell Marketers (NASM) works on a daily basis to represent Shell marketers on legislative and regulatory issues with the federal government, and in the petroleum industry through a close relationship with Shell/Motiva and many industry trade associations. These relationships help to create a stronger and more unified voice in the industry. We would like to invite you to join NASM where you have an opportunity to influence the collective voice of a strong and experienced trade association that represents your best interests as a Shell marketer in the petroleum industry.
In addition to the valuable industry support that NASM provides, perhaps its most important function is representing marketers supplied by Shell/Motiva in the branded arena, where other associations do not provide service. In concert with NASM’s work on issues related to Shell marketers, the Association also offers a package of benefits designed specifically for its members which includes the benefits below.
Marketer membership is open to the following types of companies: (i) any company that has a current wholesale marketing agreement (“WMA”) with Motiva Enterprises LLC or Shell Oil Products US; or (ii) any company that has a current Shell-branded wholesale distribution agreement with a Shell marketer or licensee.
