The theme of the 2013 Oregon Logging Conference is Sustaining the Future, leaving a lot of room to talk about the past, present, and future of the industry says OLC President, Don Hardwick. “It will allow us to bring in a host of good speakers and topics and hit a wide array of different events, both current and past.”
Hardwick is also proud that the OLC was able to establish the Oregon Logging Conference Foundation this year. “It opens up a wider array of other organizations and foundations that can contribute to the logging conference and to the scholarship program on a tax-free basis. Last year we awarded six scholarships for $16,000. We’re hoping the foundation allows us to build upon that money and grow our scholarship program.”
These are only a couple of the upcoming highlights of the OLC. Please check out the website, www.oregonloggingconference.com for a current list of events, displays, and seminars.
