Why be a member of the Northeastern Loggers' Association?

"I feel it is particularly important to belong to NELA during this age where logger training has become such a prominent issue. NELA is unique in that it has the ability to cross state and other organizational boundaries in its efforts to coordinate training throughout its membership area."

— Malcolm Washburn, Welog, Inc., Colebrook, New Hampshire

"I've always admired NELA because it is a very professional organization that keeps its feet on the ground by focusing on the needs of their membership whether the issue be safety, new harvesting techniques, latest technology, training, environmental, or political."

—J.C. 'Buck' Williams, Jayfor Logging, Inc., Lewisburg, West Virginia

"I have read The Northern Logger for over 40 years and actively participated in running the association for 10 years. Besides being personally rewarding, I have found membership to be a good business investment. The Northeastern Loggers' Association is the one northeastern US group working every day to support our industry. The more we use and support the association, the stronger it will be and the stronger our industry will be collectively."

—William B. Hull, Hull Forest Products, Inc., Pomfret Center, Connecticut
