Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc. will holds its 2018 Summer Conference at the Omni Homestead Resort, Hot Springs, VA, on July 29-31, 2018. We return to a member favorite destination with informative business sessions on:
– What Tariffs Mean To Trade – US Commerce Department International Trade Specialist Brian Eric Ledgerwood will explain the impact that tariffs have on trade with other countries.
– CLT Brings Hope To Low Grade Markets – LignaTerra USA and Argent Timberland’s Michael Shearer will discuss the company’s plans to build a Cross Laminated Timber plant in Maine. The company considered sites in WV and PA and there are discussions for the Appalachian region
– Hardwood Markets in 2018 – HMR’s David Caldwell will detail the hardwood lumber market conditions in the first six months of 2018. He will share their data on domestic and international markets
– 10 Year & The Lacey Act Successes – The Lacey Coalition’s Grace Terpstra will show three videos of hardwood industry leaders (including AHMI members) marking the 10th anniversary of the Lacey Act Amendment to include forest products and the protection it provides the hardwood industry
These topics affect every hardwood lumber producer and distributor in the Appalachian region and across the United States. The impact on pricing, demand and availability is dramatic.
