2023 Family Forest Landowners & Managers Conference
A good time was had by all!
The 2023 Family Forest Landowners & Managers Conference is ‘in the books.” This annual gathering brought together 220 forest landowners and forestry professionals for comradery, learning, and sharing of triumphs and tribulations.
It’s always difficult to take in all of the information that is provided during the conference, and this year we are fortunate that our speakers have agreed to share their PowerPoint presentations with our attendees and IFOA members as a post-conference benefit.
You will find below the schedule of presentations as they occurred during the conference. Click on the underlined title of each presentation below to open a new page which will allow you to view the presentation PowerPoint as a handout.
We hope that this information is helpful to you as you continue on your forest management journey, and, if you weren’t able to join us in 2023, we hope it inspires you to mark your calendar for the 2024 conference (March 26-27, 2024)!
