At this year’s FRA National Fly-In and Board Meeting, we were fortunate to hear from Mark Toal of the U.S. Department of Labor on how forest industries can work to bring veterans into our industry’s workforce.
It is always a hit with FRA members when two regions come together for a joint meeting. This October’s Southeastern and Southcentral Region Policy Committee Meeting, combined with a Southwide Timber Security Group Meeting, was no exception.
On September 17-19, FRA hosted members from across the country for our biennial Fly-In and Fall Board Meeting. We met with a total of 95 congressional offices of which 45 were with Members of Congress.
