Associate Members Open Forum Part Two

Traditional in-person trade shows provide a great opportunity for Associate members to share their products.  It is quite challenging to replicate that same opportunity in a virtual setting.  Join discussion on creating opportunities to engage associate members in a beneficial matter to all at the upcoming CWSAA Virtual Conference at the end of April.
