The Wood Products Manufacturers Association is pleased to announce "Splinters," a new series of monthly round table discussions. Splinters is designed to be a focused round table, where participation is free to WPMA members but is limited to 10 people only per session.
Held virtually the second Tuesday of every month, Splinters will explore significant trends, opportunities and challenges affecting wood products manufacturers around the country. Topics will include marketing and sales trends, the price and availability of lumber, new technology and new materials coming into play, and current production capacity among US manufacturers.
"We are starting this new series because we believe it is very important to reach out and inform our members about what's happening in our industry," said Philip Bibeau, executive director. "This is especially true in the COVID environment, where annual meetings and other gatherings are generally not possible. These somewhat exclusive cloud-based discussions will serve to build knowledge and engagement across our industry."
The first Splinters topic will be Raw Material Availability and Supply Chain Challenges. It will be held at 9 am EST on Tuesday, January 12, via a Zoom cloud meeting. If you would like to share your views and experience with the small group, please follow this link to reserve your spot.
