WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Shell Marketers (NASM) opened up its membership to two additional Shell petroleum product providers -- Lubricant marketers and subjobbers, the association stated.
NASM's board of directors recognized the mutual priorities of Shell fuel marketers and lubricants marketers, and voted to accept the lubricant marketers as members of the organization, the group stated.
Lubricant marketers that join the new Lubricant Marketer Membership Section (LMMS) will receive benefits including legal counsel, affinity partner discounts, publication subscriptions, member conference attendance rates and participation in The Dialogue, according to the association.
To qualify as a LMMS member, marketers must have a current Lubricants Marketing Agreement with Shell, and no fuel marketing agreements, NASM stated. A chairman will be appointed to the LMMS, and members will have the chance to shape the mission of the LMMS.
Membership dues vary by volume. Marketers with less than five million gallons pay a due of $575, while NASM provides a formula to determine dues for those who have a volume higher than 5 million gallons, with a cap of $1,500, according to NASM

In addition, the organization also opened its membership to subjobbers who assist NASM marketers.
Subjobbers that join the new Subjobber Membership Section (SMS) will receive the same benefits as the LMMS members, according to NASM. To qualify as an SMS member, subjobbers must have a wholesale supply agreement with a sponsoring Shell marketer and member of NASM, have no wholesale marketing agreement with Shell and supply at least one retail account, according to the association.
Membership dues for the SMS are $360 per year. More information on membership to the SMS can be found at the Web address below:
