Don't Just Take Our Word for It...Here's What Members Are Saying About MLA:
"I’ve been so impressed with all the information I have seen from you all and the lumber side in general. What a tremendous value you all are to your base and what a knowledgeable calming force you all have been. I’ve learned so much just taking advantage of what information you all are releasing. Thank you for that." Associate Member

"The MLA is the multi-tool for any LBM business.  With everything they bring to the table including programs, resources, education, information, training, and so much more,  they truly are an irreplaceable business partner. We utilize many of their services on a regular basis." Brett Thorne, Thorne Lumber 

"I know my family and I are extremely grateful that our industry is continuing to operate. These are the times when a few hundred dollars of annual dues pays back 10 fold. Cody, make sure you pass on a big thank you to everyone on the front lines working for us. Their hard work is not going unnoticed or unappreciated." Associate Member

"We are members of the MLA because of the information we can get with just a quick email or call.  We also love the estimating training!  All of our guys that have done this said it was the best training they have gotten on doing take-offs." Mark Hall, Hall Bros. Lumber
