The motivation behind the founding of the Hardwood Distributors Association was to obtain recognition of wholesale hardwood distributing yards as an important segment within the lumber industry. The purpose of the Association today is to maintain this recognition and to protect and promote the interests of its members.
All distributors of hardwood lumber, plywood or other hardwood products are welcome to join the Hardwood Distributors Association. New applicants must be sponsored by two current HDA members.
Being an HDA member has many benefits.
Promoting Your Business
HDA helps spread the word about your business. With print advertising and an aggressive social media program, your company will have increased exposure to potential customers and end-users.
This website is a large part of our social media presence, providing a go-to source for all those interested in using hardwood products. This site acts as an extension of your company online presence and increases the ability of new potential customers to find your business.
Problem Solving with Your Peers
Each year we provide continuing education programs that are relevant to all businesses, with guest speakers and round table discussions that address pertinent issues for HDA member companies. The benefit to problem solving with member firms that do not directly compete in your market, can save your company time and money.
Providing Networking Opportunities
Our annual meeting offers gatherings and programs with excellent opportunities for one on one and group networking. From our general membership meeting, educational programs, yard tours, to our social functions, you will have time to share ideas or problem solve with member firms.
With these and other fine benefits, you can see how the small cost of being a member will reward your company many times over!
