SACRAMENTO – The West Coast Lumber & Building Material Association (WCLBMA) has named Betsy Bendix of Western Woods as the Associate of the Year.

The award is presented to association members who go the extra mile when it comes to giving back to the industry. Bendix was presented the award during the president’s dinner at the WCLBMA Annual Convention.

WCLBMA President Mark Boone noted that Bendix is one of the members who is always at association and industry events, “and always busy helping out as needed.”

Bendix is a 25-year veteran of the LBM industry with a career that includes positions at BlueLinx, Fiberon, Huttig and All-Coast Forest Products.

“She is well known in the industry for her dedication, experience and product knowledge,” Boone said.
