Members ... We Need Your News
In an effort to keep WSTDA’s

found helpful and interesting. We want to bring more visitors to
the WSTDA site to expose them to the great work that we are
doing on their behalf. The more information and updated news we
have to share, the more we will get picked up by search engines,
and the easier it will be for people in the industry to find us.
Please send relevant news, information and links to Fred
