Happy New Year

Dear WTS Members,

Firstly a thank you for all your support during 2017 from your Board of willing volunteers working towards creating a bright and secure future for wood, both for the present generation of timber trade and wood industry professionals and for future generations who will follow in our footsteps.

For this year, on 26-27 June we have ‘Timber 2018’. We are also planning more themed seminars with a re-run of the successful ‘British Timber’ seminar, details of which you will also find on the website, which followed the Annual Review meeting in November. Any subjects you feel it will be pertinent for us to cover, please let us know. 

And finally, talking of following in our footsteps, 2018 will be the year in which a number of Board members succumb to retirement after many years of loyal service on behalf of the Wood Technology Society and previously the Institute of Wood Science. So, looking towards that bright and secure future, if you are bursting with ideas perhaps you might like to consider becoming a Board member? Please do let us know. 

We wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.

John Park
WTS Chairman
