The Alabama Forestry Association will host its Piedmont District Meeting and Childersburg Regional Reception on Thursday, October 8th at the beautiful lodge at Selwood Farm. The District Meeting is slated to begin at 5pm with the Regional Reception to follow at 6pm.
The District Meeting is open to all AFA members and is the official annual business session for the membership in the district. A presentation will be made to update the membership on the latest forestry related news and issues. The current Piedmont District Board member is Chris Langley and he will serve through the conclusion of the 2017 year.
Regional Receptions are held with three objectives in mind. First, we use them as an opportunity to express our appreciation to our members for their support and interest in the Association. Second, these receptions are excellent opportunities to bring new prospects for AFA membership to meet and experience what it means to be a part of the AFA family. Finally, we invite local public officials to the receptions and this is a great time to meet and get to know the folks that represent us and to let them see and hear issues of importance to the timber industry.
