The Western Region Building Materials Group is a progressive group of building materials distributors and/or manufacturers, all selling in the western U.S. This group is engaged in the exchange of credit experience information to assist each credit manager in their own respective credit decisions for their companies. The group has been successful in entertaining other credit topics of interest and welcomes special guests for presentations, both customer based and/or professional development.

This group is currently meeting quarterly at various locations in the western U.S. to assist all members with travel expenses. They welcome guests and companies potentially interested to seek and find the same values they have established together working and networking with each other. The group recently met in Long Beach, CA and enjoyed staying on the Queen Mary for their overnight accommodations. If your company is in the building materials industry and you have an interest in this industry group, please contact Shawna Byrne: 509.326.3420 or

“My membership and participation in the NACM Western Region Building Materials Industry Group has proven to be one of the greatest decisions I’ve made in my career as a credit professional. We maximize the benefit of meeting once each quarter by having timely, relevant speakers and round table discussions on the “hot topics” impacting and influencing our industry. The ability to network with peers who understand the dynamics of handling credit issues in the construction and building materials industry is simply invaluable. I truly feel like we collectively have our fingers on the ‘pulse’ of our industry and receive a significant benefit through membership in the WRBM Industry Group.”
