Call for EWTA Member Input

In 2011, the Engineered Wood Technology Association started sending an annual Business Outlook survey to EWTA members at the start of the year. The web-based survey is posed with questions designed to capture EWTA members’ perception of growth, company employment levels and other business-related issues. The anonymous survey results will be summarized and featured in the Spring Engineered Wood Journal.

A link to the 2022 version was sent recently to current members. Contact EWTA if you did not receive the link and would like to contribute.
