Welcome Letter from New President
I am honored to serve as the President of the NE Chapter of Washington Farm Forestry Association. I follow a strong legacy of leaders who have worked together with the fellow board members in creating a very viable and active chapter.
As members, we share our knowledge and experience with fellow landowners so we can provide economic and environmental contributions to our local communities. As part of our association, we communicate the value of private forest landowners to state and federal agencies in order to communicate our needs and avoid unintended regulation.
The chapter will be working with other forest associations, federal, state and local agencies to bring educational, social opportunities and networking opportunities to you throughout the year.
I look forward to working alongside our board to bring additional benefits to the membership. Please contact me with any your suggestions, opinions, and concerns.
All the best,
Jim Sibley, President
Northeast Chapter WFFA
