What is #forestproud? We attended the conference in September

2018 Rising to the Challenge in Atlanta, GA

The sharable #forestproud stickers, magnets, and t-shirts made us #forestproud at the registration desk. Our favorite tour was at the Sweetwater Brewery and we had some nice glasses to take home a souvenir. We went back to the Emory conference center and went to the in-house bowling center for some fun with friends.

 

 

The next day, Will Novy-Hildesley, NAFP Executive Director, started us off with a great speech about our social media engagement numbers and how we strive to keep moving forward. Ideas started flowing and pens started animating. The elusive annual shiny #forestproud artifact was awarded to Craig Rawlings of Forest Business Network for his amazing communications work which was well deserved. Although the vibe was more of a working meeting, this style of conference gave everyone a chance to be a part of the future of this bright organization.
