Powerpoint Presentation Promotes WSTDA
WSTDA’s marketing and outreach
efforts will be made easier now, thanks to the development
of a new Powerpoint presentation. The presentation provides
an overview of the Association, its products and services,
and the important work done by its members.
The association’s leadership
recognized the value in having something available to show
to industry partners and other interested parties. WSTDA
members are welcome and encouraged to download the
presentation from our website to demonstrate for customers
and employees to explain the value provided through WSTDA.
Many thanks for the input and
contributions made by many WSTDA members over the past few
months to create this presentation. Send your suggestions
