It’s hard to say in a few sentences how much WIA means to me. I was on my own for eleven years before I found it and membership has totally changed my life. It has increased my knowledge and income geometrically. I learn all the time. I honestly believe that if I hadn’t found the WIA, I would not still be hanging wallpaper.

The WIA is the ultimate resource for the wallcovering installer. I have been involved since 1987 and in that time I have missed only a handful of meetings and have attended many conventions. Every meeting there is a worthwhile exchange of information. None of us has the whole picture but collectively we can provide the confidence to accomplish anything. Come join us as we shape the future of the wallcovering industry one person at a time.
