2016 NAWLA Vancouver Regional Meeting

Record numbers jammed the elegant Vancouver Club’s Grand Ballroom yesterday afternoon, for the annual North American Wholesale Lumber Association (NAWLA) Regional Meeting. Billed as The Lumber Marketing Event of the Year, NAWLA’s Executive Director Marc Saracco opened the meeting at 3:50pm. Presentations by three featured speakers were all very well-received:

  • Cees de Jager, Chief Marketing Officer, Softwood Lumber Board
  • Daryl Swetlishoff, Senior Managing Director, Raymond James Ltd.
  • Susan Yurkovich, President and CEO, COFI

Before giving way to the ever-popular networking session, the meeting concluded with a presentation from Presenting Sponsor HSBC Bank Canada’s Ananth Krishnan, Head of Business Development, Global Trade & Receivables Finance. The Planning Committee also wishes to thank CP Rail, Euler Hermes, Norman G Jensen, and Blue Book Services for their generous support.
