WIFI will soon debut a new feature for our members - WIFI@Work. It's a great way to learn about our members, where they work, how they got in the fastener business, and what keeps them motivated. It's a great way to show-off your talents and your workplace. If you are interested in being featured, or know of someone who has an interesting story to tell, contact WIFI today.
