Joining the WPMA comes with a wide array of benefits that can help streamline your operations and grow your business. Whether you’re new to the area or have just put off joining, now is the perfect time to take action. When you do, you’ll gain access to:
Lobbying and government relations. Each state organization works as an active voice for petroleum marketers and convenience store operators with state government agencies and with state legislatures. That means regardless of where your business is located (ie: Washington, Idaho, Nevada, etc.) you will have a representation fighting for your best interest at both the state and regional level.
Health insurance. WPMA offers members a variety of health insurance plans provided by Western Mutual Insurance Company. WMIC offers both group plans and PPOs specifically designed to meet our members’ individual needs. Not only are the coverage plans comprehensive, they are also reasonably priced.
Meetings and networking opportunities. WPMA works continually to improve communications among all petroleum marketers through both local and state meetings as well as involvement in regional and national conventions. These meetings give petroleum marketers a chance to meet fellow marketers from other areas and exchange strategies and ideas.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of what you can expect as a WPMA member, but they are the cream of the crop. To learn more about becoming a WPMA member, or about some of our upcoming events, we invite you to visit our website.
