The NCFA sponsors a Forestry Day Legislature annually. The event is the best opportunity for NCFA members to come to Raleigh and meet with their elected officials in a relaxed atmosphere on the Halifax Mall.
Forestry Day will take place on May 2, 2017. The Friends of Forestry PAC will hold its reverse raffle that evening. The NCFA’s Board of Directors will meet on May 3, 2017.
The event begins with a briefing at 9:30 a.m. from NCFA staff on the important issues facing forestry interests and the forest products industry. Members are given information to leave behind with their elected officials. From there, NCFA members are free to visit with their individual members and invite them back for the luncheon that starts at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon continues until 1:30 p.m.
Forestry Day is extremely popular with the members of the North Carolina General Assembly and their staff. The NCFA encourages all of its members to make Forestry Day a priority.
