The Only Independent Organization Dedicated to Serving Shell-Branded Petroleum Marketers

Our History

The National Association of Shell Marketers, Inc. (NASM) is a brand-specific trade association which represents the interests of those companies which have wholesale supply contracts with Shell Oil, its licensees or its branded marketers.  NASM provides Shell marketers with access to valuable legal services and educational programs; maintains a dialog with Shell on behalf of members; and engages in public policy advocacy on behalf of petroleum marketers through communications with federal agencies, the U.S. Congress and other petroleum industry associations.

NASM was originally incorporated in Georgia on July 19, 1974 as a nonprofit corporation.  Originally known as the “Georgia-Florida Consignee’s Association, Inc.”, the Association adopted the name “National Association of Texaco Wholesalers, Inc.” on May 19, 1976.  Subsequently, on May 10, 1999, the Association was expanded to include marketers of Shell petroleum products, and was reincorporated in Virginia as the “National Association of Texaco and Shell Marketers, Inc.”  As the conversion from Texaco to Shell retail outlets progressed, the Association evolved into an exclusively Shell marketer organization, and on September 15, 2003, the Association changed its name to its current name, the “National Association of Shell Marketers, Inc.”

Our Mission

NASM is dedicated to providing its marketer members – both large and small – with guidance to enhance their Shell-branded business by acting as a key conduit to Shell personnel and programs, providing access to fellow marketer principals for timely knowledge and best practices sharing, and providing legal expertise on contracts and current events in our ever-changing industry.

Nearly 350 people have served on the Board of Directors since 1974. All marketer members are invited to serve on the Board. For more information, email nasm@nasmonline.com or call (888) 340-NASM (6276).
