MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD: Supporting Wisconsin’s Forest Products Industry

FP_ListeningSessions

Wisconsin’s rich and abundant forests—and the many value-added products we create with these plentiful resources—are vital contributors to our state’s economic welfare, accounting for more than $35 billion of our economic output.

Yet driven by globalization, technology changes, environmental considerations and many other factors, this key industry is at risk and changing rapidly.

For the good of us all, Wisconsin’s forest and forest-products economy must keep pace with these changes to thrive into the future. 

We want to hear from you. Please join state leaders and industry experts to make your voice heard in two upcoming virtual listening sessions dedicated to reinvigorating our forest products industry:

May 6, 2021 – 2-4 PM: Register: https://join.inwisconsin.com/wiforestrylistening1
May 11, 2021 – 6-8 PM: Register:

Ideas and insights gathered during these sessions will help guide future economic development support to create a more diversified, robust and enduring forest products industry.

Who should attend:
Local government representatives
Private sector companies
Associations within the forest products industry
Environmental organizations
Anyone impacted by the forest products industry in Wisconsin, such as areas impacted by loss of jobs in the paper industry, communities where tourism is focused on forest/outdoors, etc.
Anyone in Wisconsin who has an opinion on the resourcing of state forests or the forest products industry
