It has set up and maintained a series of awards for engineers, scientists and other professionals. APESMA support members by offering expert advice on pay, conditions and rights at work. They are also a collective voice, which means strength in numbers, and give professional access to industry intelligence. APESMA empower members with tools and services to assist advancement.
