The Place to Be: SFI Annual Conference
October 16-18, 2018
When it comes to providing supply chain assurances, producing conservation outcomes, and supporting education and community engagement - Forests are the Answer. The 2018 SFI Annual Conference will engage you in a discussion focused on why Forests are the Answer to so many of our  conservation, community, and supply chain challenges.

The SFI Annual Conference brings together thought leaders and influencers: forest sector representatives, conservation and community partners, and Indigenous leaders as well as some of the most engaged forest product customers in the U.S. and Canada. This year's conference will discuss topics relevant to national and international initiatives across the forest sector. Come to the 2018 SFI Annual Conference to learn more and engage with the SFI community. 
 
What attendees said about the 2017 SFI Annual Conference
 
"We are just thrilled to be here in this milieu of people who are all committed to sustainable management of our forests."
 - Healy Hamilton, Vice President for Conservation Science
NatureServe
"The SFI logger training program is so vital and critical...[It's] a true benefit to the private landowner to be able to say: 'Here is someone that I can bring on my property, that I trust, that I know is going to implement best management practices... It creates real value on the ground."  
- Scott Jones, CEO
Forest Landowners Association

"Forests have never been under the stress that they are today, which is why we embrace the story around sustainability that SFI is working on... Healthy forests are really key, not just for productivity and growth but for the very sustainability of the planet which we share."
 - Inger Andersen, Director General
International Union for Conservation of Nature

"I'm incredibly proud of the relationship that we have [with SFI] and the dream that we have of having a dual [PAR-SFI] logo on a Canadian Forest product here in Canada at some point in the near future."
- JP Gladu, President and CEO
Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business
