2018 Annual Conference: Details and Info


As Michelle and I prepare to welcome all of you to this year's Annual Conference in Beaver Creek, I have been reflecting on my time serving on the SLMA Executive Committee and how incredible the people involved with SLMA really are. While attending the SLMA Roundtables, I have observed first hand how hard our members work to manage their sawmills and timberlands for the betterment of their companies and communities. At the D.C. Summit, I saw how devoted SLMA members are to working for the viability and growth of our industry, when back to back hurricanes battered the Southeast and members still travelled to Capitol Hill to lobby for our industry on tax reform, farm bill, and regulatory reform. I have witnessed how dedicated SLMA's membership is to making our industry better, as attendance at our meetings and roundtables continues to grow, our political involvement and influence continues to exceed expectations, and the current generation of mill owners trains and mentors the next. 

When in Colorado enjoying the beautiful, natural scenery of the Rocky Mountains and celebrating another strong year of lumber markets, I hope you will also take a minute to reflect on how important the SLMA community is to your company and continued success. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you in Colorado!
