The AMEU promotes quality of service and management excellence amongst its members in the field of electricity supply, and facilitates communication between its members and between members and the technical, economic and political environment, in order to influence that environment. In the interest of electricity distributors and all categories of end users in the electricity supply industry in Southern Africa it also provides an advisory service to its members and the customers of its members.


Affiliate members of the Association are drawn from commercial and private sector organisations and operate a separate committee under an elected chairman. They liaise closely with the Secretariat and Executive Council at all times. In addition to attending branch and national meetings, they get together regularly to plan their participation and contributions to all AMEU activities.
