Each year the Maine Forest Products Council hosts a reception for legislators, state officials and, of course, our members.

It’s a chance to get to know each other in a relaxed setting before the legislative session gets time-consuming or divisive. It’s also an opportunity to enjoy light hors d’oeuvres, beverages and good conversation.

This year the reception is set for Thursday, February 13, from 4-7 p.m. at the MFPC office,  535 Civic Center Drive, Augusta. (Please RSVP to Sue McCarthy.)

Last year’s Legislative Reception was crowded with legislators, state officials and members talking about everything from the Agriculture-Conservation merger to the SFI flume.

“It was a great success and well-attended,” said Executive Director Patrick Strauch. “It was a good opportunity for both members and legislators to get to know each other.”
