Peter Van Den Berghe has accepted the position of Wood Flooring Association (WFA) President. Lisa Roberts has stepped into the role of Vice-President.

“After 11 years as President and more than 20 years on the committee David has served the WFA tirelessly” said incoming President Van Den Berghe.

“I have been honoured to be President of the WFA, but I felt the Association needed to move on with new leadership,” said David.

“I couldn’t leave the Presidency in better hands than Peter’s and it is also a great stride forward to have a new Vice-President as well. Lisa has proven herself to be a real ideas person and a great contributor to the association,” David remarked.

David will remain a WFA committee member.


The WFA has recently launched its new website.

“This website is to point people who are requiring reports to the independent and professional service offered by the WFA” said President Peter Van Den Berghe.
