Associate members of the World Floor Covering Association have the distinction of being part of the professional trade association that represents the entire floor covering industry. Legislative and regulatory matters are monitored through an ongoing lobby in Washington, DC. Through our industry research and educational programs, the WFCA keeps members informed of marketing trends and methods, in order to increase sales and upgrade professionalism within the floor covering industry. Showcasing membership in the WFCA enhances the reputation of all members, as a symbol of quality and reliability to consumers.
Membership categories and investment figures below represent an 12-month investment. There are three current membership investment categories for associate members:
Associate members are eligible to receive a 20% discount on exhibit space at TISE, the premier floor covering marketing event sponsored by the WFCA.
Free admission to the exclusive WFCA Member Lounge at TISE.

Membership dues paid to the World Floor Covering Association are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary business expenses.
