Join the PLC
November 4, 5, 6, 2013 ♦ Paris Las Vegas ♦ Las Vegas, Nevada
Can you believe the 104th Pacific Logging Congress is just around the corner? That means it's time to renew your annual PLC membership and make a contribution to the Pacific Forest Foundation; your donations will funding for our educational programs which teach thousands of children each year about logging, forestry, and the timber industry!
Since 1909 the PLC has provided a forum loggers, equipment manufacturers, and timber owners to discuss the economic movement of the timber “from stump to dump”. As conditions have changed over time, the PLC broadened its program to include discussions of regulatory and political issues, and at all times has provided steadfast support for the timber industry through our educational outreach program which are managed by the Pacific Forest Foundation. Industry leaders and business executives gather annually to discuss current issues impacting the harvest, regeneration, and management of our most natural (and GREEN!!) resource, timber. The 104th Congress will cover a variety of topics as knowledgeable speakers dissect critical issues. Visit www.pacificloggingcongress.com for updated program details.
Education is an important aspect of the PLC/PFF, well confirmed with wide acceptance of our popular It Takes a Tree curriculum, which is distributed free of charge throughout the United States and Canada to thousands of science teachers. With the assistance of the Oregon Forest Resource Institute, PLC/PFF hosted over 2,000 children at the 6th Live Woods Show in September 2010. Plans are now underway to repeat this invitation to school children for the 2014 “In The Woods” show under the leadership of 2014 PLC President Duane Evans, VP US Forestry, Port Blakely Tree Farms.
Our new flagship program, This Is My Office, has received outstanding review worldwide and in May of 2010 the DVD won the Silver “Telly Award”. We are excited and extremely proud of this achievement. Certainly, it will lead to even greater accomplishments through the future combined endeavors of PLC/PFF. In addition, the Pacific Forest Foundation website www.pacificforestfoundation.org is actively being used by high school and college students alike who are seeking careers in the timber industry.
Membership is your “key” to participation in the Pacific Logging Congress and by renewing promptly you will receive up-to-the-minute information on the 2013 convention and activities. Please CLICK HERE to download the dues membership form, complete the form and return it to the PLC along with your payment as quickly as possible so you don’t miss a thing! As an added benefit; PLC in partnership with Caterpillar Inc. is offering a $100 credit, for paid members (covering all or some of the cost of your membership!), to be used within 120 days on future Cat machine rental, parts, sales and service at your local Caterpillar Dealer or Cat Rental Store. More information will be mailed directly to you from Caterpillar Inc.
The officers and staff of the PLC/PFF continuously seek out new educational opportunities to help the next generation define the future direction for our loggers, mill workers and manufacturers for the next generation. This goal requires the support and generosity of people like you to help us continue in our efforts in educating the public.
