Society of Wood Science and Technology

Letter to Attendees




TO:  Attendees of the 2008 SWST International Convention


Dear Friends of SWST,

The members of the Society of Wood Science and Technology would like to express our sincere thank you to each of you who attended the 51st Annual Convention of the SWST recently held at the Univeridad del Bio Bio in Concepcion, CHILE.  Your attendance and participation were the reason this was such a successful and rewarding convention.  SWST has long served as the premier professional society for wood scientists, technologist and engineers across the U.S. and Canada.  Our goal over the next few years is to expand those services to our international compatriots in wood science while continuing to provide exceptional service and benefits to our North American members.  As a direct result of your contribution (whether it was a poster, oral presentation, or simply from your attendance), we have now taken that first step to become that premier international professional society in wood science and technology.

After the success of the convention in Chile, we even more convincingly foresee a great future for SWST and for advancing the boundaries of wood science and technology.  We invite you to continue your journey with us and hope to see you in Boise, Idaho in 2009 and in 2010 in Geneva, Switzerland with United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s Timber Committee (UNECE/TC).   

We are confident in our future and our future journeys in large part because of your hard work in making this first major step into the international arena such a success for SWST.

Thank you!



President SWST 


Executive Director SWST
