WMMA President Allen Eden has announced that both the WMMA and WMIA memberships have approved the agreement and plan of merger in which WMMA would be merged into WMIA effective January 1, 2024.
The name of the merged association will be changed to the Wood Industry Association (WIA).
The WIA Board of Directors will be meeting in Austin on Nov. 1-2, to discuss programming, events, committees, logos, branding, and the budget for 2024.
Please stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to send them to Allen Eden.
Thank you for your continued dedication to the industry, and we look forward to a promising future ahead.
The benefits of the merger include:
- One unified voice for the wood machinery industry in North America.
- More resources to invest in member programs, safety standards and public policy.
- Expanded committee and volunteer opportunities.
- Greater efficiency through streamlined operations and fewer redundancies.
