Become a Member

CEAM’s board members and staff serve on a variety of committees. We actively network with key individuals at local, state and national government levels, and where appropriate, we strategically align ourselves with other organizations for mutual benefit (i.e. MN Ag Waters Resource Center, Farmers Feed Us, Midwest Poultry Consortium, other commodity groups, etc.).

CEAM represents the industry and serves as the unified voice of our members in times of crisis regarding regulatory matters and issues management, as well as public relations.

As a resource and spokesperson for members, CEAM represents the industry at local, state and national-level meetings and seeks to ensure policies/regulations are reasonable and based on scientific facts.

Through our affiliations in all aspects of the poultry industry, CEAM has access to an incredible network of professionals and resources across the country that we tap into as needed.

If you’re interested in becoming a member of CEAM, please see the membership options below, which will help you determine which level of membership is right for you.
