Help Grow the WICA Membership

At the WICA 2018 Annual Convention our membership set a goal to share the member benefits of WICA with companies and peers that would not only benefit from membership, but excel as WICA members. While our membership has grown seen moderate growth from this initiative, we need your help to continue in a positive direction! Take a minute to fill out the referral form on the WICA website and we will personally contact your referral! If each member submitted one contact that would benefit from a WICA membership (contractor, associate, or affiliate) the membership will continue to grow exponentially. We are invested in the success of the industry and our members and we hope you’ll join us!
