Value to Members Program
In reviewing our many ways to add-value to our BC Wood membership, the most productive is in finding ways for our members to save money on services that they need and can really use. With the buying power of a “group”, we have been negotiating with a number of service providers including our Associate Members and now have significant “added-value” propositions to offer BC Wood members. We are going beyond just being the “tradeshow guys” and forming alliances with services that our members need to help their business grow, while saving on expenses. All our Value to Members service providers are important links in the business chain.
Our Value-to-Members Program has been designed with you in mind. What do you do and what do you need to make your business more profitable and grow? We believe we have addressed a number of your needs, but we will be adding to our list of partner services, based on your feedback and comments. Tell us what you think!
If you have any questions regarding the new Value to Members Program, please contact our office. We are your Association and our commitment is to help you grow your business, profitably.
