The 2015 SFI Annual Conference showcased how the SFI community continues to grow and become more diversified year after year. People travelled from across North America. International guests included representatives from PEFC International who came from across Europe, Asia and Australia to help us set a new attendance record of close to 300 attendees.

The SFI community is alive and well and our connections are stronger than ever. Coming together in Olympic Valley, CA was extra special because of our 20th anniversary celebration. Together we learned how we are Growing Our Future. The future is bright based on all the exciting things we learned about strengthening connections between sustainable forests, thriving communities and responsible purchasing. The conference featured presentations and collaborative sessions with leaders from the conservation, community and economic sectors. Highlights included the latest on sustainable forestry and conservation, updates on grassroots community work by SFI Implementation Committees, developments in tall wood buildings, and new initiatives between family forest owners and global supply chains.
