Sporting a fresh, new look just in time for Spring, the WCMA launched a new website this week. The new site offers the most popular features from the past but in a newly designed format that offers easier access for members and visitors. "Our Wood Processing Resources library and Get-a-Quote are our most popular website functions." says Executive Director, Amy Snell. "A streamlined browsing experience can make all the difference when looking for information on the wood industry, memberships, or events." In addition to the new website, WCMA members and tech partners have a new members-only portal that offers, among other things, full control of membership accounts, access to exclusive, members-only resources, and improved communications. Contact WCMA staff at email@example.com if you need assistance navigating the new website, member portal, or have feed back you'd like to share.
