About the Forest Products Society
The Forest Products Society is an international not-for-profit technical association founded in 1947 to provide an information network for all segments of the forest products industry. The Society’s Vision is to be the world leader in technical information transfer to further the socially beneficial use of wood and fiber resources. The Society’s Mission is to foster innovation and research in the environmentally sound processing and use of wood and fiber resources by disseminating information and providing forums for networking and the exchange of knowledge.
Society members represent a broad range of professional interests, including private and public research and development, industrial management and production, marketing, education, government, engineering, and consulting.
The Forest Products Society also acts as the distributor for the technical publications of the American Wood Council which constitute an invaluable information resource on wood construction for engineers, architects, builders, and building code regulators, including engineering data, state-of-the art design technologies, and construction standards.
