WDMA’s mission is to define the standards of excellence in the residential and commercial window, door and skylight industry and advance these standards among industry members, while providing resources, education and professional programs designed to advance industry businesses and provide greater value for their customers.Salsieder’s involvement with the association spans more than 10 years. He has been a member of the WDMA’s board of directors since 2006. He also serves on a number of other boards including the Kolbe’s board of directors, the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce‘s board of directors, and the North Central Technical College‘s foundation board.
“Serving as the WDMA’s chair of the board, I am honored to help advance the interests of a very important industry that, not only supplies valuable products that are needed by the consuming public, but an industry that provides jobs for hundreds of thousands of people,” says Salsieder.
The WDMA announced its new leadership team on March 20 at its 2013 Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. Salsieder replaces the 2012-13 chair, Ann Duebner of Eggers Industries in Two Rivers, Wis.
Michael O’Brien, WDMA’s president, notes that he looks forward “to working with Mike as WDMA’s new chair. His knowledge and passion for the industry will help move WDMA to the next level in efficiently providing the best services to our members and being an even better advocate for the industry.”
Many of Kolbe’s employees also are active community and industry leaders and volunteers. Several serve on various WDMA committees and boards, and regularly attend WDMA conferences and seminars.
