“There is no better place for us to jump right in to our work on behalf of private forest landowners in 2017 than in Washington DC,” said FLA CEO Scott Jones. “Congress and the administration have both begun to realize the economic and environmental importance of larger private forest landowners and the FLA will continue to reinforce our role in having the needs and concerns of these landowners clearly communicated.”

The meeting will kick off on Monday with two smaller breakout meetings. The Strategic Planning Implementation Committee will meet in the morning and the Executive Committee will meet in the afternoon.

On Tuesday, February 7th the entire Board of Directors will meet. The morning will be dedicated to discussing the role that large landowners play in the organization and the opportunities to make the most of the strategic partnerships those landowners have already established.

The afternoon session will be dedicated to official FLA business and will be followed by a reception.

Wednesday will be dedicated to advocacy and education and FLA staff are already working on booking appointments with key policymakers in both the House and Senate.

“Although most of our work is focused at a grassroots level, it is important to strengthen relationships with our Congressional champions and agency partners at their offices in DC,” said Jones. “It just makes sense to add this to our board agenda while we are all together.”

The board meeting will be held at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza and board members can book a room by using this booking link.
