West Palm Beach, Florida– During the recent 2021 National Hardwood Lumber Association Annual Convention, which was held here recently at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) held a Board of Managers meeting and welcomed association members.

AHEC Executive Director Michael Snow also provided an educational seminar at the NHLA Convention. The presentation was titled “The New Normal? Hardwood Exports In A Changed World.”

Headquartered in Sterling, VA, AHEC is the leading international trade association for the U.S. hardwood industry, representing the U.S. hardwood exporters and the major U.S. hardwood product trade associations.

All programs are run though the joint efforts of the U.S. hardwood industry and the Foreign Agricultural Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture to broaden the impact on, and outreach into international markets, giving members the sharp competitive edge needed to meet the growing worldwide demand for American hardwood products.
