Some of us might wonder if the North American Wholesale Lumber Association risks upstaging CNN and Wolf Blitzer with BREAKING NEWS when the 2017 NAWLA Regional Meeting convenes in Vancouver next week. We can’t be sure of that. Although the anticipated public announcement of the U.S. Department of Commerce preliminary CVD ruling April 25th against Canadian softwood lumber imports is expected to draw a full house to the NAWLA gathering two days later, April 27th. An expert panel’s assessment of implications of the preliminary ruling is sure to attract heightened interest:
- Jason Fisher, Associate Deputy Minister, Forest Sector at B.C. Ministry of Forests
- Susan Yurkovich, President & CEO, B.C. Council of Forest Industries
- Duncan Davies, President & CEO, Interfor Corporation
