Structure

Our committees oversee the TTF’s policy development and provide a conduit for us to communicate with members. Our Governing Board approves the overarching TTF strategic plan and provides oversight of its implementation.

 

The Governing Board consists of representatives of our Softwood, Hardwood and Panel Products Divisions and our Regional Associations. Within the Governing Board also sits the sustainability and compliance committee, Forests Forever.

We have started developing our Working Groups as a way of focusing on major industry topics. These include Cladding, Flooring, Merchant Forum, Engineered Wood Products and Chinese Plywood.

 

Each product division has an executive committee which governs the agenda of the division. By joining a TTF Committee, Regional Association or Working Group our members can vote and have a say on the future of the timber industry.
