BY HBSDealer Staff

Allyn Ford, CEO of Roseburg Forest Products, has been elected chairman of the American Wood Council (AWC), effective January 2018 for a one-year term. 

Danny White, a director of T.R. Miller Mill Company, was elected the first vice-chairman, and Neil Sherman, executive vice president of siding at LP Corporation, was elected as second vice-chairman. Current AWC board chairman, Stimson Lumber CEO Andrew Miller, will serve as the immediate past chairman.

Sean McLaren, vice president of U.S. lumber operations for West Fraser, was confirmed as a new member to the AWC board.

“Andrew was at the helm during a time of significant opportunity for the wood products industry,” said AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski. “With his leadership as chairman this past year we completed important work to prepare for the 2021 code cycle and address challenges we face in the marketplace. I look forward to working with Allyn as we move into the new building code cycle in January, as well as on efforts across all our other programs and activities.”

Based in Leesburg, Va., the AWC represents about 86% of the U.S. structural wood products industry and provides engineering data, technology updates, and standards for wood products to assure safe and efficient building design. The AWC also advocates for government policies that affect wood products.
