The Homestead, Hot Springs, VA – July 29-31

Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc. will holds its 2018 Summer Conference at the Omni Homestead Resort, Hot Springs, VA, on July 29-31, 2018.  We return to a member favorite destination with informative business sessions on:

– What Tariffs Mean To Trade – US Commerce Department International Trade Specialist Brian Eric Ledgerwood will explain the impact that tariffs have on trade with other countries.

– CLT Brings Hope To Low Grade Markets – LignaTerra USA and Argent Timberland’s Michael Shearer will discuss the company’s plans to build a Cross Laminated Timber plant in Maine. The company considered sites in WV and PA and there are discussions for the Appalachian region

– Hardwood Markets in 2018 – HMR’s David Caldwell will detail the hardwood lumber market conditions in the first six months of 2018. He will share their data on domestic and international markets

– 10 Year & The Lacey Act Successes – The Lacey Coalition’s Grace Terpstra will show three videos of hardwood industry leaders (including AHMI members) marking the 10th anniversary of the Lacey Act Amendment to include forest products and the protection it provides the hardwood industry

These topics affect every hardwood lumber producer and distributor in the Appalachian region and across the United States. The impact on pricing, demand and availability is dramatic.

There will be golf and sporting clays tournaments and time for networking with members and guests. There will be a special AHMI 90th anniversary celebration during the meeting with invitations to past presidents/chairmen to return.

The Omni Homestead Resort touts itself as America’s first resort. It has more than 2,000 acres of scenic Virginia landscape and provides timeless comforts and an exciting array of activities. AHMI still receives the Modified American Plan which means that breakfast and dinner in all restaurants are included with your room.
