Young Professionals


The Young Professionals group consists of individuals that are relatively new to forestry. The 45-and-under leadership development group was created in 2007 to infuse young leaders in Forestry Association activities and programs. Today, this group provides social events for interaction with experienced foresters and other young professionals from around the state, service opportunities to educate K-12 students on our industry and professions within forestry, and enhanced networking and professional development within the forestry community through various meetings and workshops. Our goal is to provide a means for communication among all forestry professionals, and is also intended to identify new talent and leadership within the forest industry as we grow into future generations. This new generation of foresters will be given a chance to become recognized as emerging leaders through this program.
