Message from the Chair

As the new chairperson of the committee, I want to thank all the leaders who served the committee so well last year. I am looking forward to a 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 new 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.
