Women In Timber Associations have
been actively fighting for our way of life in the Forest Products Community
since 1976. Based mostly in the Western States, but also as far east
as Michigan, each Women In Timber Association is a grassroots, volunteer
organization whose focus is: education, communication and legislation.
Each state, or region, is organized, and in most cases incorporated,
independently of each other, focusing on issues that affect their own state
We come together several times a
year under the banner of Federated Women In Timber to focus on national
issues. The Federated Women In Timber Board of Directors is comprised
of two representatives from each state or regional Women In Timber
organization, with the chair rotating annually.
Every spring representatives from
each state Women In Timber group meet in Washington DC to spend a week
visiting our elected and appointed officials, and discussing with them
issues that affect our lives in the Forest Products Community. We
pride ourselves on the claim that during our week in Washington DC our Women
In Timber representatives visit the office of every Senator and Congressman
on the Hill, leaving behind our well put together folder of information.
