Who is WCR?

The helpful voice on the phone, the warm, friendly face who greets you is none other than Dawn Harju, President of WCR; Lindsay Johnson, Admin Assistant, or Elizabeth Pryor, Permit Coordinator.

Dawn bought WCR in 2007, and since then, has worked hard to make it the BEST resource for local contractors.

“My dream is to see local work, designed by local consultants going to local contractors and suppliers,” says Dawn. “Our goal is to help you make your bidding process a successful one. Your membership supports WCR so we can support you and the community. It’s win-win.”
