Registration is now open for the American Loggers Council (ALC) 20th Annual Meeting to be held September 25-27, 2014 in Harris, Michigan at the Island Resort and Casino. President Brian Nelson from Cornell, Michigan is pleased to invite everyone to the meeting and to participate in the opportunity to meet professional timber harvesters from all across the United States.

“This is not only an opportunity to network with other professionals in our industry, but also going to be a celebration of uniting timber harvesters over the past twenty years under the banner of the ALC. We are pleased to see the event returning to Michigan where our first President, Earl St. John of Spalding, served and led the organization during its formative years” Nelson states.

A new format is being introduced which will include an optional logging tour on September 25, followed by technical and educational seminars on September 26th. Seminars on telematics, equipment fire suppression systems, Tier IV engines, and business management will be offered. Continuing Education (CE) credits will be made available for local contractors who wish to attend the Friday seminars with both Michigan and Wisconsin offering up to 4 hours of credit.
