Easy to Call a Fellow Member
“One thing I value about the WCLBMA is how easy it has become to call a fellow member to share or ask for guidance. This can be related to credit ratings, theft control, equipment strategies or a safety procedure. The cost of membership is nothing compared to paying an unnecessary negative consequence.”
