Attend the Business Meeting at 4:00 to hear about the past year’s accomplishments of your Associa­tion; issues and challenges facing the timber industry; election of 2015 Directors (Seven positions will be open); a report on the financial position of the ACLT, and other presentations.

At 5:00 the “Break­up” Social Hour will be held with a cash bar and compli­mentary appetizers sponsored by the many fine corporate sponsors of the 2015 ACLT Annual Meet­ing and Banquet. But save room for the sumptuous Prime Rib and Walleye Buffet to begin at 6:00.

These select few have been invited based on their lifetime of commitment to various elements of the timber industry and the respect they have earned from their timber industry peers.

Also, for a chance to win part of the $5000 cash raffle, be sure to buy a raffle ticket. Many ACLT members have raffle tickets to sell between now and the event. If you need to know who has them in your area, give the ACLT a call at 218-780-5927. The prize levels are Grand Prize – $3,500, 2nd Prize – $1000 and 3rd Prize $500. Tick­ets are $20.00 each. The drawing will be held at the conclu­sion of the evening (9:45).

The ACLT has a block of discounted rooms available, but the rooms at this rate are limited so it is recommended that reservations be made as soon as possible.
