Benefits

There are many benefits to BLA membership, including:

Website: Free listing of your company’s contact information on the BLA website with a link back to your business website.  List your products and services and connect with potential buyers.

Events: Invitations to our seasonal events offer you the opportunity to meet local wood producers and users and learn more about the species available in our woodshed.  Stay up-to-date on trends in the wood and building markets; learn how to raise the bar and stay ahead of others in your field.

Project Profiles:  We would love to share your work with our members and readers in an upcoming newsletter and on our website!  If you’ve made use of BLA-sourced wood, be sure to send us your photos and an overview of your project—we’ll showcase it for you.

Influencing Positive Change: Your participation in the BLA is critical to establishing a local market for regionally grown wood. You can have a hand in developing a healthy local economy while preserving our region’s forestry tradition.
