The WPMA organises a number of events across the year for its members. We either do these alone or in partnership with other forestry organisations under the Wood Council of New Zealand. Every two years Woodco runs the national forestry industry conference "ForestWood" (www.forestwood.org.nz) where participants get to hear first-hand from politicians how they are creating a business environment enabling central government to thrive.
WPMA in addition runs a technical conference every year to address issues uniformly affecting the sector. WPMA also runs the annual NZ Wood Timber Design Awards where the latest advances in wood-based construction are showcased. Over the coming year WPMA will be working on events that are more regionally focused. This acknowledges that there are not only distinct regional differences in the way the industry operates, but that our member companies play a critical role in regional economic and social development and environmental protection.
