About MSLBMDAServing You & Our Industry Since 1891


Mountain States Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association

mslbmda about us
Letter From Our Executive Vice President

The Mountain States Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association’s history is the story of 127 years of independent lumber and building material dealers throughout our five-state region of AZ, CO, NM, UT, and WY. As with the family businesses that have made up this organization through the years, the integrity, stability, vision, and leadership that has passed from generation to generation is what has taken us from 1891 to 2018, and is what will allow us to stand the test of time.

We are a diverse group of small and large, rural and urban, single and multiple operations who understand that by being part of an association they are stronger. Together we have seen good times and bad, have shared in each other’s success, and helped each other through challenging and difficult times.

Although the world has changed greatly since we began in 1891, bringing with it advances in technology, communication, logistics systems and manufactured products, our members today still face many of the same basic issues that those who came before us have. In order to run a successful operation and thrive in a rapidly-changing world, we need support, education and legislative advocacy to accomplish our goals.

It is, however, our belief that although the industry may look very different in years to come, the integrity, honor, dedication, and leadership that is our legacy will carry us well into the future.

- Dena Cordova Jack, MSLBMDA Executive Vice President

A Word From Jose Ortiz—Regional VP, Foxworth-Galbraith
