Forest Resources - Innovations Shaping the Future
Tuesday May 15 - Thursday May 17, 2018
Dear Western Region FRA Members, Participants and Friends,
It is our pleasure to invite you to the Western Region Forest Resources Association Spring Meeting scheduled to be held Tuesday, May 15th through Thursday, May 17th “just up the road” at Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia. The theme for this meeting: “Forest Resources – Innovations Shaping the Future”.
Online registration for the meeting is now available for your convenience by clicking to REGISTER NOW on this message. Please feel free to contact Vickie (906.282.6752) with any questions or comments that you may have.
Meeting events will kick off on Tuesday, May 15th with “Activity Day” – your choice of Golf, Fishing or Wine Tasting. Then, Tuesday evening, everyone is invited to gather for the infamous Icebreaker reception.
With the recent up-tick in economic activity on both sides of the border, the Western Region FRA Planning Committee has put together a list of offerings with the objective of assisting you in better understanding our current economic environment especially targeting the shortage of both fiber and labor resources. The offerings begin with our Technical Seminars scheduled for Wednesday, May 16th and continue with presentations during our General Session on Thursday morning, May 17th In addition Vickie (and her “Compadres”) are hosting a dinner for all of us Wednesday evening. As always – “Jackets are welcome, but not required”.
We are looking forward to your participation at this Spring Meeting as we are optimistic that we have collectively put together a varied and informative program. Please pass the word to others in our industry and invite them to the Meeting. The more the merrier!!
Best Regards –
Bruce Brewer, Idaho Forest Group, FRA Western Region Policy Committee Chair
