The National Council of Forestry Association Executives (NCFAE) is a group of forestry executives that run state and national trade associations. The group gathers once a year for a meeting to share information on best practices, operations, HR, and strategic planning, and also report on national public policy issues happening around the states. NCFAE meetings provide a great educational and networking opportunity. Forest Resources Association (FRA) provides ongoing administrative services to the council.

NCFAE 2023 Annual Meeting

Save the Date!
Tuesday, July 11 – Thursday, July 13, 2023
The Four Seasons Island Resort, Pembine, Wisconsin

Tucked into the north woods of Wisconsin, the Four Seasons Island Resort is located on the 100 acre Miscauno Island in the Menominee River – which divides Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Originally opened in 1905 by the Wisconsin and Michigan Railroad, the all-suite hotel has been frequented throughout the years by numerous socialites, infamous gangsters, industrialists, famous capitalists and professional athletes – and soon, forestry association executives! Attendees will enjoy modern amenities while the resort’s original architecture, charm and relaxing ambiance have been tastefully preserved. 

The closest airport is Ford (IMT) in Iron Mountain, Michigan approximately 30 minutes north of the resort and offering limited nonstop commercial air service from Minneapolis and Detroit with connections to many US cities.  The resort is located about 90 minutes north of Green Bay and three hours north of Milwaukee.

We look forward to offering an informative Field Tour to kick off the meeting on Tuesday and a fun post-meeting activity on Wednesday.  You can also expect presentations from leaders in the forestry and association management spaces, roundtable discussions and, of course, time to network and socialize with your forestry association executive peers.

Additional details will be sent early next year, stay tuned!  In the meantime, if you have any session/topic/speaker ideas you’d like the Planning Committee to consider, we invite you to complete the brief form at this link.

See you in July!
