Message from the Chair

As the returning chairperson of the committee, I want to thank all the leaders who served the committee so well last year. I am looking forward to another productive year raising the forest resources law and policy issues to the forefront of the Section on Energy, Environment and Resources efforts. I am eager to introduce you all to the vice chairpersons. This roster is diverse with varying interests in forest resources law and policy, from across the country, and from a variety of sectors, with many continuing their service to the committee from last year. If you are interested in any of these subcommittees, please reach out to the vice chairs, they welcome the help.
