VISION 20/20.

As an industry reacting to significant changes in forestry policies, shifting markets, and structural changes to our forests, this year’s convention will provide a vision into the future. “Vision 20/20” offers contractors, forest managers, community leaders and regulators a range of perspectives and an outlook for timber harvesting in BC.

David Elstone
Executive Director, The Truck Loggers Association

A MESSAGE FROM DAVID ELSTONE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

I invite you to join us at the 77th Annual Truck Loggers Association Convention + Trade Show to be held at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver from January 15 – 17, 2020.

Our annual event is regarded as a highlight of the forestry industry, bringing us together to share experiences, knowledge and build new relationships. Registrations continue to grow and our trade show sells out each year.

Delegates tell us they value the opportunity to network with their industry peers and the variety of program sessions offered. With our Vision 20/20 theme and the industry currently in crisis, this year’s event will provide plenty of forward-looking discussion.

I look forward to seeing you there.
