The conference goal is to highlight current policies impacting forestry and discuss opportunities that will allow better utilization of our forest resources across the congressional districts represented.
The day will be broken into three panel discussion topics with the representatives serving as moderators for each. Panels will focus on Tribal Perspectives on Land & Timber Management , Timber Transportation Issues, and Innovative and Alternative Solutions in National Forest Management. In addition to the three panels there will be a roundtable discussion and question and answer session with representatives from the US Forest Service and a conversation about the economic importance of timber featuring Reed Hall, CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), Bill O’Neill, Michigan State Forester and Chief of the Forest Resource Division of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), with Henry Schienebeck, Executive Director, Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association serving as moderator.
