MFPC 2018 Annual Meeting

Maine Forest Products Council

58th Annual Meeting

Sebasco Harbor Resort

September 16-17th

Registration Form

It’s time to sign up for MFPC’s 58th annual meeting, Sept. 16-17, at beautiful Sebasco Harbor Resort in Phippsburg. We’ll devote Sunday, Sept. 16, to fun and fellowship, including golf and a barbecue. Monday, we’ll get down to business, with a full program of speakers and reports on what’s happening in Maine’s forest economy, including:

Mary Anne Hansan, president of the Paper and Packaging Board (P&PB), will tell us about the unified paper industry effort “to help strengthen consumer awareness of the value of the industry’s products, increase consumer appreciation and spur consumption.” She leads the “How Life Unfolds” campaign, which was launched in 2015 and spends about $20 million annually on integrated marketing to reach a target audience of 38 million Americans. She’ll share P&BB’s latest consumer research and the campaign’s overall progress, including what messages and methods resonate with consumers.

 — Marco L’Italien, vice president of International Grand Investment Corp., owner of the Woodland mill, will update us on the mill and talk about issues and opportunities in the tissue market.

 — Steve Schley, Pingree Associates, will fill us in on the progress of the Forest Opportunity Roadmap (FOR/Maine).

Charlotte Mace, executive director, BioBased Maine

— We’ve invited all four gubernatorial candidate forum — Shawn Moody (R), Janet Mills (D), Terry Hayes (I) and Alan Caron (I) — to share their perspectives on Maine’s forest products industry and take questions from members.

And of course you won’t want to miss Happy Hour – Silent Auction/Live auction with auctioneer Jim Robbins or the banquet and awards ceremony.

DON’T WAIT! REGISTER NOW.
The success of this meeting depends greatly on membership support. As a MFPC member, I would like to extend to you the opportunity to participate as a sponsor. As you know, sponsorship is an essential component to all the events we hold, and it is especially important to subsidize the cost of the events. This allows broader participation of our members by keeping individual expense down. A special form for sponsorship registration is enclosed with your registration materials. We hope that you will join us for our biggest event of the year. Registration forms for all events and meals are enclosed.
