SPECIAL PUBLICATIONS

Two Easy-to-Read, Informative Directories

GAWDA’s annual Membership Directory and annual Buyers Guide have a clean, fresh look and convenient formatting that makes it easy to find members and obtain their essential contact and product information.

The GAWDA Membership Directory is the most extensive directory our industry offers. It contains key contacts for all member companies, allowing members to communicate directly with those they’re trying to reach at other GAWDA companies.

The Membership Directory’s easy-to-read format features pages that are color-coded. Red pages present Distributor listings  and blue pages represent Suppliers. And — back by popular demand — this year’s directory features a special section of distributor listings by geographic location.   

The Buyers Guide is a comprehensive listing of GAWDA supplier members. It’s an excellent way to find new offerings to add to your business    or to look for new and additional sources of the supplies distributors need every day.

The Guide also serves as a helpful tool for wholesalers and suppliers who want to find new strategic partners as a way to build business for both parties.
