Promoting Professional Growth in the Forest Products Industry

In 2001 Northwest Management, Inc. and Idaho Forest Associates initiated a unique conference for professional foresters targeted to promoting continuing education, ethics and pride in our profession. This annual conference has over the years grown to include valuable information and workshops for all natural resource professionals. The conference is dedicated to providing high quality workshops on new ideas, technologies, and emerging policy and professional issues.

The 20th Foresters Forum will be held on Wednesday, February 3 through Friday, February 5, 2021 at The Coeur d’Alene (Resort) in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Once again, the Forum will be dedicated to providing Inland Northwest foresters and resource professionals the opportunity to focus on their profession, learn new ideas, techniques and technologies, and share information. We are pleased to provide highly qualified and top-notch speakers from all over the nation. Over 90% of the material presented at the Forum is new, every year, and this year will be no different.
