MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS.

The TLA is continuously enhancing the programs it offers to its members. As a member of the TLA your organization will be able to provide your employees and their families with important services such as health benefits, insurance and several affinity programs that provide substantial savings for TLA members.

MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES AND FEES.

INDUSTRIAL MEMBERSHIP

The TLA was formed by Industrial Members to represent the interests of Industrial Members and we continue to strive to meet that objective. The TLA Industrial Members come from all facets of the industry: logging contractors, manufacturers, forest agreement/license holders, brokers and phase contractors are a few examples of what is considered an industrial member. As a general rule of thumb, if you are in the business of harvesting, manufacturing, movement of logs, and/or sale of wood products you qualify as an Industrial Member. TLA Industrial Members are eligible to run for election to the TLA Board of Directors and hold voting rights at annual general meetings in terms of policy or by-law changes.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

The TLA also welcomes membership from associate companies and organizations. Associate companies are any person, firm or organization who is engaged in work or services allied or associated in any way with the forest industry: equipment companies, insurance brokers, and investment companies are just some examples of our Associate Members. The TLA Associate Members have full access to the TLA membership benefits and Affinity programs; however Associate Members do not hold voting rights at annual general meetings in terms of policy or by-law changes or elections. In order to ensure our Associate Members have a voice, some Associate Members are invited to participate as non-voting Associate Board Directors.
