Member Logo Policy


The WQA Member Logo distinguishes the Association’s member companies from others in the marketplace and assures customers that these companies adhere to the Association’s Code of Ethics. As a benefit of membership, the WQA Member logo can be proudly displayed on promotional materials to help connect members across the industry worldwide and create new domestic and international business opportunities and relationships.

Companies who do not belong to WQA and members that have allowed their membership to lapse or expire, as well as those who have chosen to terminate membership, forfeit the right to to use and display the WQA Member Logo. The WQA Member Logo is a benefit for dues-paying members in good standing only. Please review the WQA Member Logo Usage Policy for more information.

If you have questions about logo usage or membership, please contact the WQA Membership Department at or 630-505-0160.
