I'm interested in one of your open categories, but it is only a small part of my business. Can I still apply?
No. The category that you own in the WEA must comprise at least 75% of your business.
I see that the business category that I am in is currently filled. How can I let the Association know that if the opportunity presents itself, I would be interested in membership?
Please send a letter to with a brief description of your business, what category you are interested in, and we will keep it on file for consideration if the opportunity presents itself.
What happens to members that don't achieve their minimum Measurement of Value?
Any member that is not at 75% or better MOV at the end of the fiscal year (September) will forfeit their membership and their category will be declared open.
