We are pleased to announce that we quite possibly have our best line-up yet for the upcoming Timberland Investment Conference later this month. We have had some great speakers and sessions in previous conferences but we are more excited than ever about what’s in store this year.
In addition to the Landowner Panel consisting of five family firms who represent around 800,000 acres of timberland holdings about an hour’s drive from the Conference venue, we are delighted to announce that we also have 2 CEO’s of large publicly-traded REITs, Paul Boynton of Rayonier and Dan Fulton of Weyerhaeuser, speaking at the conference this year.
Also joining us are Danielle DiMartino of the Federal Reserve and Dr. Kermit Baker of Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies:
Danielle DiMartino Booth is a Senior Financial Analyst & Advisor on monetary policy to Dallas Federal Reserve President Richard W. Fisher. She researches, writes and speaks about the intersection and interaction of the economy and the financial markets. Danielle speaks to audiences nationwide about the origins of the housing and credit crises. Her current speech focuses on the implications of the interruption of the housing market correction and why it impinges the economic recovery. We’re sure that she will have many interesting (and hopefully more positive!) things to share with respect to the economy and financial markets and how that may effect timberland investments going forward.
Kermit Baker is a Senior Research Fellow at Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, and is the Project Director of the Remodeling Futures Program. In this capacity he analyzes business and construction trends for the U.S. economy, and examines their impact on AIA members and the architectural profession. Dr. Baker will likely share valuable insight on various housing and construction trends he’s seeing and how they will impact the forestry industry over the next several years.
There are also many more outstanding experts and participants in the industry that will be sharing their views on various topics, during both the conference itself and through the various breakout sessions that are scheduled throughout the conference.
