The 2012-2013 Annual General Meeting of the New Brunswick Forest Technicians Association will be held at the Maritime College of Forest Technology on April 30th in room 228 at 13:00. Please plan to attend. There are positions on the Executive to be filled and the association is only as strong as the membership that supports it.
Many topics will be on the agenda. While this is tentative, it looks like an exciting event.
- Jeremy Gullison will give a presentation on pest updates in the province.
- The Canadian Institute of Forestry is going to present their proposal of us joining groups.
- Acknowledging Mike Cunningham who was named an Honorary Member at the last AGM but was not able to attend due to work commitments.
- Duke Hughes – Honorary Member for this year as his name was brought forward too late last year. How many Techs graduated because of this guy and his ‘Up Boys. Up!’ rants?
- Special honors for John Tourunski who has helped shape forestry and Forest Technicians and Technologists throughout North America.
