IWPA members are invited this fall to attend the IWPA Mid-Year Member Meeting from September 11 – 13 at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town to participate in a Washington briefing.  This is your chance to connect with policy makers and your Members of Congress on the issues important to your business. 


The Meeting will include briefings with policymakers on critical topics impacting the global timber trade such as the EPA formaldehyde regulation, the recent listing of rosewood timber species on CITES Appendix II, and the upcoming renegotiation of NAFTA, as well as an afternoon on Capitol Hill meeting with Members of Congress and staff to highlight the important role your companies play in their districts. These meetings are crucial in putting faces and names to the policy issues we seek their help on throughout the year.
If you have questions about the Meeting please do not hesitate to contact Joe O'Donnell.
