THE WOMAN IN TIMBER
                             

 

 

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 or region.

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.
