The Oregon Logging Conference has been in existence since 1938. The Oregon Logging Conference is one of many regional logging conferences and associations that meet annually within the United States and British Columbia. Representatives from the Oregon Logging Conference also participate in the Pacific Logging Congress which is an umbrella conference to the regional conferences.
Since 1938, the Oregon Logging Conference has stayed true to its founding principle of assisting forestry professionals in their pursuit of professional development. Here are some ways OLC continues to work to advance the forestry industry.
Conference Seminars and Panel Discussions
Each year, OLC hosts informative educational seminars and panel discussions on forestry-related topics. These educational opportunities are invaluable to forestry professionals, who earn professional logger credits while networking and exchanging ideas with their peers.
In addition to providing educational exhibits aimed at explaining the problems and conditions of forestry related industries, OLC has donated more than $275,000 to public education programs. OLC also supports the Oregon Women in Timber’s free educational program, Talk About Trees. The free program presents science-based curriculum to kindergarten through eighth grade classes.
