FRA and ALC Join in "Logging Careers" Promotion

Washington, DC – The American Loggers Council (ALC) and the Forest Resources Association (FRA) are working together on a project to help men and women considering a career in logging to understand what logging work is like and to link them with the connections they need to find employment.
A four-color brochure, Is Working As A Logger For You?, describes basic qualifications for logging employment, characterizes several logging configurations, and presents statements from employers about what to expect from employment in logging. It also provides a link to a page on ALC’s web site, www.americanloggers.org/careers, which provides state association contacts who can connect motivated individuals to employers and training opportunities.
