Annual Business Outlook Survey
This year marks the twenty-second year the Engineered Wood Technology Association has sent an annual Business Outlook survey to EWTA members. The web-based survey is posed with questions designed to capture EWTA members’ perception of growth, company employment levels and other business-related issues. A link to the 2023 version was sent to current members. The anonymous survey results will be summarized and featured in the Spring Engineered Wood Journal. Contact LaDauna Wilson if you did not receive the link and would like to contribute.

Upcoming Spring EWTA Advisory Committee Meeting
