The AFA Program Committee and staff have put together an outstanding agenda for the 74th Annual Meeting, scheduled for October 8-10, 2019, at the Embassy Suites Little Rock. Every aspect of this conference is designed to support AFA’s vision to be the respected leader and credible information source for all issues related to forestry. As an integral part of the association, you can champion this vision by being a meeting sponsor and/or exhibitor.

The meeting format—two nights and three days—will provide participants networking and educational opportunities. On Tuesday, October 8, we will have recreational events including golf and trap shooting, a workshop geared towards landowners on timberland security in Arkansas and ethics training for foresters, an AFA Board of Directors meeting and a reception in the exhibitor area, followed by dinner on your own.

 

Wednesday is a full day of general sessions, with topics touching on every aspect of forestry, including the keynote address from Governor Asa Hutchinson. At the end of the day, we will adjourn and travel to the JA Riggs Tractor Co. to see the heavy equipment and enjoy a catfish dinner. The meeting concludes Thursday morning with a unique showcase of AFA award winners and their contributions to our community.
