  Timcon General Meeting - March 2021
  Friday 26th March 2021
 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Members of TIMCON are invited to attend the next General Meeting which will be held online

For our next General Meeting, we convene online once again albeit this time with a bright light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, and four months of being outside the EU. An opportune moment therefore to have Will Surman (Head of Programme, EU Plant Health, Official Controls and Animal Health Regulations, DEFRA), speak about the recent, current and future developments regarding WPM following the end of the transition period.

We are also pleased to welcome Brent McClendon, President and CEO of the NWPCA to speak to us about developments across the pond in the US timber packaging and pallet industry. We also have Alun Watkins of the PEFC giving us an update on opportunities in Chain of Custody certification. We round off with the a brief PR report on activity - keeping TIMCON at the forefront of our industry - and the Open Forum, which we anticipate once again will be a lively discussion!
