TCA Foundation Golf Tournament, Oct. 27th at Greystone Golf Course!

TCA's FALL 2020 Virtual Conference Nov. 11-12th!

This is going to be different AND cool! 
Within a virtual platform, you will be able to hear your friends’ voices as you approach groups. You will see their name right above their head! And you can see on the list of attendees within the platform exactly where everyone “is” and can go directly to that area. No more hunting for them. Just click and go talk to them!! This is virtual at its best!

Join us as we engage in mixers just like at an in-person event. We will also be hosting engaging  presentations by experts in their fields to include NRMCA updates and updates on the new TCA campus.

In the Expo Hall attendees can visit our vendors “in person” for group or private conversations about the various products and services our vendors represent. These vendor booths feature the ability to run videos as well. Banner opportunities there are numerous to get your message out loud and proud!

Building with wood is more “Green”? That’s debatable. 

Yes, that’s right, it IS debatable. 

Wood products industry analyses generally don’t account for the high recycled content in most steel, or for recent advances in reducing the carbon footprint of concrete. But worst of all, they don’t tell you the whole story about what logging and forest management practices are really doing to the environment. It ain’t pretty.
