Join us at the KFIA 54th Annual Meeting and find out what is happening not only in Kentucky but around the country.  The past year has brought an improving economy and numerous changes related to export markets and concerns with log     supply and wet weather.  We have some excellent speakers lined up to discuss the current issues related to Chinese markets, weather, product demand and exciting news about market developments.   In addition to the expert speakers in each field, the program is full of activities and provides excellent opportunities for networking and meeting with exhibitors.   

 The meeting will kick off Tuesday, April 2 with the John C. Smith Invitational Golf Scramble scheduled for the Marriot Griffin Gate Golf Course.  The golf outing is a fun event that everyone enjoys and all golfers regardless of abilities are invited to play.  We will be glad to add you to a team or you can put together your own foursome.  An evening Welcome Reception in the exhibit area will wrap up a busy day for those that want to get together for some fellowship and find out who came out on top in the golf scramble.  The KFIA Board of Directors will also be meeting in the late afternoon.

 Wednesday, April 3 the exhibit area will be open all day long for networking.  Also we will have speakers on tap to discuss bourbon demand, the White Oak Initiative and improving management on Kentucky Fish and Wildlife lands.  The KFIA Business Meeting will be held in conjunction with the KFIA/KY Tree Farm Awards Luncheon where the new officers will be    elected and outstanding individuals will be recognized for their achievements in the forest industry community.   

Following lunch the Communications/SFI committee meeting will have an open discussion on certification issues and funding of current projects by SFI members.  The afternoon will start   kicking up with free time for attendees to visit the always popular Robinson Lumber & Van Meter Insurance Hospitality Suite and then return to the Exhibit Hall to wrap up the days events with an exhibitor reception.     

On Thursday, April 4 the last day of the meeting begins with breakfast in the exhibit area.  The General Session   will cover recent issues with hardwood market exports and tariffs and the weather affects on the wood products and forestry community throughout the region.  The final topic will look at recent  research and developments related to sawdust utilization that is taking place at the University of Kentucky.
