The new year marks a time when many people all over Washington decide to take on home improvement projects, and residential contractors begin gearing up for countless trips to a builders supply in Snohomish County, WA. But for those who are new to the area (or simply new to the industry), identifying a building materials supplier to turn to can be very challenging and overwhelming. When it comes to making such an important decision, what are some criteria to keep in mind?
Naturally, factors like location, product selection, staff expertise and budget will play key roles in deciding which builders supply in Snohomish County, WA you decide to make your go-to source for materials. But there is another, less obvious factor to take into account: membership in the Association of Washington Business (AWB).
What is the AWB?
The AWB has been Washington’s premier statewide business association since its founding in 1904, and now claims nearly 8,000 member businesses. About 90 percent of AWB member businesses are smaller companies that employ fewer than 100 people, and over half have fewer than 10 employees. Collectively, AWB members employ some 700,000 Washingtonians.
The AWB is dedicated to the promotion and advancement of Washington businesses through innovation and the development of an outstanding labor force. The organization hosts a number of events, continuing education programs and networking opportunities each year, all of which give Washington business owners a chance to bolster their business acumen and foster partnerships with other members.
