Enthusiastic and dedicated young professionals, committed to promoting the continued success of our industry and developing their own potential. Members of YLP include operations, human resources and sales personnel to managers and owners who have or whom are seeking to make a career within the lumber manufacturing industry. Members are chosen by their employers based upon their potential for growth. The two requirments for membership are (1) the potential members must be 40 years of age or younger, and (2) their company must be a Member or Associate Member, in good standing, of SLMA.
