FIFWA staff and members recently joined about 90 guests as they gathered at the Leschenault Timber Industry Club's World Forestry Day Dinner at the Parade Hotel in Bunbury. The theme of the evening was one close to our hearts, Securing The Future For Our Timber Industry.
Mr Jeff Loton (Leschenault Timber Industry Club President), Mr Ian Telfer (FIFWA President) and The Hon Dave Kelly MLA (Minister for Water; Fisheries; Forestry; Innovation and ICT; and Science) each gave short speeches addressing various topics. Later, Mr Stuart West (Forest Products Commission General Manager) formed a panel discussion with Mr Loton and Mr Telfer and they fielded questions from the audience.
Mr Telfer also took the opportunity to share FIFWA's new video, a snapshot of the timber industry in WA. You can view it below, on our homepage and on YouTube.
