Industry Information & Data

CWMA Library

Part of the CWMA’s mandate is to share statistical data, technical expertise, and to centralize current information and news from our members. 

MAJOR OVERHAUL! The Library will expand in 2023 to enable our members, and the greater industry, to access information that will allow them to stay up-to-date on progress, inspire cooperative projects, and have a point of reference to assist with their own research. 

At times, we will send out surveys and collectors to aggregate information for the benefit of members and the greater industry. The information is not comprehensive, but is often a great snapshot to guide decisions and/or further research.

If you notice any errors or omissions, or have any suggestions as to how we can improve on this resource, please contact us anytime.
