Join MFPC to be heard in Augusta and Washington!
Since 1961, the Maine Forest Products Council has been the voice of Maine’s forest economy. MFPC represents the diverse needs of Maine’s forest products community. Our members include landowners, loggers, truckers, paper mills, tree farmers, foresters and lumber processors, as well as bankers, lawyers and insurance executives. We represent anyone who has an interest in seeing the Maine woods remain a viable, sustainable resource.
We serve our community by gathering information, bringing groups together to discuss concerns, hosting events, conducting tours and helping people find common ground. We represent our members at the Maine Legislature, across the state, in Washington D.C. and across the nation.
The MFPC Board is very active, holding weekly policy teleconferences during each legislative session to discuss bills of interest and arrive at positions.
It’s essential that Maine Forest Products Council members get to know their legislators, because representatives and senators want to know how legislation affects their constituents.
The first step is finding out who represents you in the Maine House and Senate.
