Mission, Vision and Program of Work

Mission:
To maintain and secure adoption of local, state, and federal policies that encourage management, utilization, and conservation of forest resources while maintaining or strengthening the pro-business climate for the wood and paper products industry.

 

Vision:

Sustainable forests that provide social, economic, and environmental benefits.

Program of Work:

To maintain and secure adoption of local, state, and federal policies that encourage management, utilization, and conservation of forest resources while maintaining or strengthening the pro-business climate for the wood and paper products industry.

The Forestry Association (FASC) is a private, non-profit organization of individuals and companies dedicated to forest conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources.

FASC is partnership of landowners, loggers, foresters, educators, researchers, conservationists, and sportsmen. They are joined by lumber mills, pulp and paper mills, wood processors, and equipment dealers.  FASC helps them all deal with common concerns and reach common goals.

What FASC Does For You

  • Advocacy of forestry through representation before the SC General Assembly, US Congress, and federal and state regulatory   agencies
  • Credible information and policy communication within the industry
  • Workshops on forest management, safety, legislation, and more
  • Receive the Carolina Forestry Journal and annual magazine - the best sources of information on forestry in South Carolina
  • Group insurance programs
  • Awards, recognition, and incentives for outstanding achievement
  • Support Project Learning Tree, Log-A-Load for Kids, SC Teachers’ Tour, and other projects
  • Research, education, and conservation efforts through the South Carolina Forestry Foundation
  • Intangible benefits of membership can be overlooked if we don’t do our part to remind our members of their importance. Benefits such as enhancing professional growth, technical training, access to information, industry promotion, and representation before the government.

But membership is more than that, it’s also about civic responsibility.  Perhaps Teddy Roosevelt said it best:
"Every man owes part of his time and money to the business or industry to which he is engaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere."
